Innovate financing for climate change

by | Oct 27, 2015

For those interested in understanding how finance is important for climate change and how innovative financing arrangements can help combat poverty and renewable energies, this Lab is a good source of inspiration. Very illustrative experiences on how public finance can play an instrumental role on climate change adpatation and mitigation.
People think that climate change is about costal destruction, temperature, poor households being affected by cyclone and floods, etc. which is right! But the only way to PREVENT this from happening is providing insurance for farmers, funding for innovative energy financing in non commercial setting and other basket funds and financial arrangements which are NOT supported by commercial traditional banks.

We use Earth Science technology to improve the quality of life in our world, especially the economic livelihood opportunities of the world's most vulnerable populations and the sustainable use of the natural resources of our planet. Our work is divided in six main program areas- Climate Adaptation, Climate Mitigation, Ecosystems, Natural Resources, Poverty & Livelihoods and Climate Services.
