Private Sector Perspectives on Climate Resilience
November 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Inter-American Development Bank in partnership with Four Twenty Seven and the Global Adaptation and Resilience Investment (GARI) Working Group invite you to attend “Private Sector Perspectives on Climate Resilience” on Monday, November 14th at 7:00pm, in Le Meridien Hotel N’Fis, Marrakesh, Morrocco
Climate change threatens organizational continuity, property and critical infrastructure across sectors and geographies. Yet climate change is also driving demand for new resilience solutions in the form of emerging technologies, analytics, market intelligence as well as new financial and investment models that better frame and manage climate risks.
Bringing together thought leaders from the private sector and international financial institutions, the panel will examine challenges and opportunities facing private actors in the arena of climate resilience. Panelists will provide insights into the latest developments in technology, finance and the entrepreneur community on how the private sector can turn climate risks into opportunities and contribute to greater social and economic resilience.
We hope you can join us for this timely discussion and fruitful networking at the cocktail reception after this panel.
