Davos Open Forum 2010 – Climate Change: Financing Urgent Adaptation

www.weforum.org 29.01.2010 The immediate and most critical consequences of climate change affect countries which have contributed least to global warming. Developing countries need up to 200 billion euros yearly to fight drought, lack of water, floods and deforestation limitation, and to introduce friendly energy sources. Therefore, immediate financial help from developed countries is of vital importance to such countries. How should adaptation measures be financed in fast-developing nations and developing countries to protect the climate? Which financing instruments are effective? How can international solutions coordinate climate change? What were the results of the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen? What are the costs of inactivity? What would a more radical questioning of our growth and prosperity mean? This session is co-organized with the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches (SEK-FEPS). Haruhiko Kuroda, President, Asian Development Bank, Manila Judith Rodin, President, Rockefeller Foundation, USA Barbara Stocking, Chief Executive, Oxfam GB, United Kingdom Matthew Wale, Minister of Education and Human Resources Development of the Solomon Islands Moderated by Romaine Jean, Journalist, Swiss Television TSR, Switzerland
