Increasing climate change impacts as well as compounding risks as highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrate the urgent needs for innovation in the area of climate change adaptation and resilience.

This virtual webinar, hosted by the Adaptation Fund as part of the 2020 World Water Week, will provide an introduction and overview of the Adaptation Fund’s various funding opportunities for innovation in climate change adaptation through its unique Innovation Facility.

The panel discussion will showcase the different perspectives of the various stakeholders on the role of innovation for climate change adaptation in the water sector, including national and multilateral development institutions, as well as civil society in vulnerable developing countries.
