“How can we use bonds to fund adaptation projects?”

Climate change has arrived, and its devastating effects are transforming the world. Fires are raging in California, floods are hitting Bangladesh, and droughts are extending their grip over the Middle East. Social and physical infrastructure will need to adapt. The problem is, these programs will cost money, something that many communities do not have. One way to solve this will be to obtain Resilience Bonds. Resilience bonds are specific loans that financial institutions can give out to adaptation projects. These usually involve sending a large amount of money to a community that they can use to build capacity that will be paid off with interest, the latter of which will be the profit generated by the financial institutions.
