Session Description

We are already witnessing the impacts of the global climate crisis – more frequent extreme weather events, less predictable weather patterns and increased stress on food systems. While no country is immune to the effects of our changing climate, it is the world’s poorest and those least responsible for environmental damage who continue to suffer the most, whether through displacement, lack of food or scarcity of resources such as water and energy.

 

Low- and middle-income countries are under enormous pressure to adapt and build their resilience to climate change. Digital technology, when adopted through enabling policies and strong cross-sector partnerships, is uniquely positioned to build the capacity of future societies, natural systems and agriculture value chains to cope with, and recover from, climate-related hazards, trends, or disasters.

 

This fireside chat will delve into the role of international donors to enable opportunities in low- and middle-income countries for accelerating investment and innovation for climate resilience.
