Mechanisms to finance climate change adaptation in Australia

Short Summary of Resource
This report provides a comprehensive review of the state of financing for adaptation in Australia and around the world, including a review of the role of the insurance industry in driving financing
Detailed description of the resource
The anticipated impacts of climate change on Australia’s coasts are varied, but from a finance perspective it is useful to distinguish between impacts that are i) slow-onset, with a level of certainty that they will occur although uncertainty remains over their exact extent(e.g. sea level rise, temperature rise) and ii) extreme weather events, that are unpredictable in terms of timing and severity (e.g. more frequent intense storms with increased rainfall and dangerous winds)
