As the urgency of addressing climate change intensifies, green bonds stand out as a crucial financial tool for financing adaptation initiatives aimed at reducing environmental impacts, particularly those with high initial costs. Indeed, green bonds can drive financial systems towards a resilient and adaptive future; however, there is a need for robust frameworks to counteract misalignments and prevent greenwashing in climate adaptation finance. The conference will examine the role of green bonds in climate adaptation, with a focus also on mini green bonds for SMEs adaptation projects.
