In times of a rapidly changing climate, it’s rural communities and smallholders in the developing countries are most affected by climate change. Investment is urgently needed , yet only 5% of climate finance goes to adaptation, with small businesses often unable to access finance. This session explores innovative approaches to scale climate adaptation finance, especially with regards to increasing smallholder resilience by financing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and intervening along agriculture and forestry value chains. While also emphasizing the importance of nesting project-level activities into an integrated landscape approach to achieve broader landscape objectives of inclusive development, increased resilience, and biodiversity conservation. Join for real-world examples that bring together these mutually reinforcing objectives and approaches showcased at the session include the recently launched Landscape Resilience Fund.
