|| New PFAN Call for Proposals Seeks Projects & Businesses with Climate Adaptation Benefits for Development & Investment Support
|| Call for Papers/Abstracts
|| To highlight the role the private sector, including businesses and investors, can play in climate change adaptation as well as mitigation, PFAN has launched a special Call for Proposals for projects that deliver adaptation-related and climate resilience benefits in low- and middle-income countries.
As clean energy technologies improve and their costs continue to fall, people are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that it is possible to develop commercially viable projects that contribute to climate change mitigation.
In contrast to this, much less emphasis has been placed on developing and sourcing investment for commercially viable projects and businesses that contribute to climate adaptation and resilience. PFAN will address this gap, by seeking businesses in various sectors—from agriculture, infrastructure and water all the way to micro-finance, insurance and tourism—which offer opportunities for commercially viable projects to deliver climate adaptation benefits, by reducing climate vulnerability or increasing the resilience of populations to the effects of climate change.
In the coming months, PFAN will be soliciting applications from businesses that deliver adaptation-related benefits to their communities and will be highlighting these benefits to investors and the wider public.
PFAN is looking for commercially viable projects that can demonstrate that they contribute to a decrease in climate vulnerability and/or an increase in climate resilience.
