Bridging the Adaptation Gap

The Global Adaptation & Resilience Investment Working Group (GARI) was launched at Paris COP21 in conjunction with the UN Secretary General's A2R Climate Resilience Initiative. GARI brings together private investors and other stakeholders to focus on the practical intersection of investment and climate adaptation and resilience. 

At COP22, GARI released "Bridging the Adaptation Gap," a discussion paper focused on (1) Approaches to Measurement of Physical Climate Risk and (2) Examples of Investment in Climate Adaptation and Resilience."  

Over 2016, GARI convened over 150 participants in a series of five meetings and conducted the 2016 GARI Survey, which received 101 responses from GARI participants and related stakeholders. "Bridging the Adaptation Gap" is based on the GARI meetings and 2016 GARI Survey.
