Ep.2 Demystifying adaptation finance

“Governance and political buy-in perhaps remain the most crucial factors in determining how we finance adaptation comprehensively at scale”

In this second episode of the “Finance for climate resilience brought to you by CDKN” we unpack the topic of climate finance. This can be a tricky concept to fully understand and so we delve into the ins and outs of this niche space and all that it has to offer in the world of finance for climate resilience.

Host, Kamlesh Pillay, is joined by distinguished guests Malango Mughogho and Kathryn Bakos. Kathryn Bakos is the Director of Climate Finance and Science at the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo in Canada and Malango Mughogho is the Director of ZeniZeni Sustainable Finance based in South Africa. Listen in as they share some of their insights and experiences from the work on things like whether or not enough is being invested in adaptation finance, looking at how to track the flow of adaptation finance as well as the important lessons that are being learned in the process.
