Abstract

While there is a great need for projects that help coastal communities adapt to the impacts of climate change, investment flows into adaptation are scarce. A recent study commissioned by the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility describes several ways to finance and/or fund the broad range of adaptation initiatives needed to secure coastal assets.

The study draws on interviews with 29 stakeholders from 25 different organisations representing all levels of government, institutional investors, banks, consultants and the insurance industry. This presentation will describe key features of adaptation initiatives from an investment perspective and showcase a range of potential finance mechanisms.
