(CS7-FR) Changing Climate, Changing Finance: Tools and Approaches for Financing Resilience (Workshop)
Presenters: Jessica Shoubridge (moderator), Graham Watt, Paul Kovacs and Ujala Qadir
In a world that is changing at an unprecedented rate, how are new financial arrangements being made and new funding mechanisms being deployed to meet the demands of the rapid transition to a low-carbon, resilient world? This interactive session will explore the resilience funding and finance landscape from the local to the global, featuring contributors from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Get inspired by those who are innovating in this space and be a part of the growing momentum in green and sustainable finance!
This session will utilize interactive polling, Ignite-style talks and other interactive methods to ensure that the audience is included as active participants. The input from the session will also inform the next iteration of the Understanding Risk (UR+) Symposium to be held in the spring (2020) in Vancouver. The session is moderated by Jessica Shoubridge, a planner with 10 years’ experience working to build resilience in Southwestern BC.
