Discussion Paper: Bridging the Adaptation Gap
Global Adaptation & Resilience Investment Working Group (GARI)
At COP22, the Global Adaptation and Resilience Investment Working Group (GARI) released Bridging the Adaptation Gap, a discussion paper focused on (1) Approaches to Measurement of Physical Climate Risk and (2) Examples of Investment in Climate Adaptation and Resilience” and summarizes the discussions of over 150 private investors and other stakeholders who met five times in 2016. Four Twenty Seven served as a contributing author to the paper.
The GARI report showed that over 70% of private investors surveyed see both risk and investment opportunity from the impact of climate change. According to GARI, 78% of 101 surveyed investors and other stakeholders thought evaluating the physical risk from climate change was “very important,” while 70% would consider making investments that supported adaptation to climate change or climate change resilience now.
