Closing the gap between available financing for climate change adaptation and the needs of developing countries requires looking beyond traditional sources of finance—i.e., grants and (concessional) loans—to innovative financial instruments and mechanisms that can unlock (private) investment. These instruments are increasingly viewed as a means to scale up the investment needed for countries to achieve their climate adaptation goals.
This inventory provides information on a range of innovative financial instruments that have been used, or potentially could be used, to finance the implementation of climate adaptation measures. It is intended to inform governments, project developers, and financiers about available instruments and how they have been used, or could be used, to increase resilience to climate change.
