Adaptation Finance for Commercial Banks with operations in Emerging and Developing Markets


Adaptation Finance Reference Guide for Commercial Banks

KPMG and Standard Chartered Bank, in collaboration with the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and the Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI), are developing a Reference Guide on Adaptation Finance for commercial banks, as well as for broader private sector participants. The Reference Guide focuses on Emerging Markets and Developing Economies (EMDEs). It aims to provide a clear outline and blueprint for accelerating and facilitating increased private sector involvement in adaptation finance. This will be achieved by defining adaptation-related investments and co-benefits, and integrating them into existing market frameworks and principles, such as the UNDRR Resilience Taxonomy, Green Bonds Principles, Social Bonds Principles, etc. The Guide is currently in development and is scheduled for launch in early 2024.
