UNFCCC COP 28 / Cryosphere Pavilion event - Mountains of opportunity: how to leverage funding for climate adaptation

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
From: 10.12.2023 to: 10.12.2023

Mountain areas are key for climate adaptation efforts due to their transboundary and global importance (natural hazards, water towers, global biodiversity hotspots), high vulnerability to climate change, and tendency to host marginalized and isolated communities. This event, organized by the Adaptation at Altitude programme, will focus on the importance of funding for climate adaptation in mountain areas. The panel will bring together representatives working on adaptation in mountains and climate finance to discuss needs for adaptation funding in mountains and highlight pathways for leveraging finance, such as finding synergies between mitigation and adaptation projects, and by showcasing examples at the national and regional level and from public and private funding mechanisms.

This event will be held at 10.00-11.00 GST (GMT+4) on 10 December in the Cryosphere Pavilion. It will also be live-streamed on the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative YouTube channel.
