An emphasis on private finance has emerged in climate finance discussions, particularly in the context of international climate change negotiations. This is partly because the overall volume of finance needed to support adaptation in developing countries is beyond what many expect public finance to be able to contribute.
This chapter identifies current evidence about private sector financing for adaptation and analyses how more private finance could be mobilised through both financial and non-financial instruments.
