Setting the stage: Climate solutions for fragile and vulnerable contexts | BCSC 2023

The session focused on the Climate for Peace Initiative and the Bridgetown Initiative and addressed inequalities, institutional barriers in accessing the necessary finance to alleviate climate-related security risks, debt relief, multilateral development bank reform, loss and damage, ideas for new funding mechanisms - solutions that meet the needs of communities most impacted by climate change. 

During this conversation, panelists identified potential pathways for improvement and pragmatic solutions to break down structural barriers to implement climate solutions. In anticipation of pacts and pledges expected at COP28, speakers outlined ways to mobilise climate funding to bridge the gap between needed and accessible climate funding for vulnerable and conflict affected contexts.
