Abstract

Session 4: Climate finance

The financing needs for climate mitigation and adaptation amount to hundreds of billions of US dollars globally every year. The Asia Pacific region includes the largest newly-industrialized economies with escalating environmental challenges, as well as some of the most vulnerable nations to climate change. This session discusses how to best structure and promote climate financing in the region, in particular how to mobilize additional resources through (i) existing mitigation and adaptation funds, (ii) catalyzing private sector investments and (iii) market-based mechanisms such as carbon markets.
