The 8th Exchange Series “Financing Urban Adaptation and Resilience” E-Discussion Report


The 8th Exchange on “Financing Urban Adaptation and Resilience” was raised by Dr. Peter King on 16 June 2015 to engage the APAN climate change adaptation community in Asia and the Pacific. The Exchange period lasted approximately 2 weeks. The e-discussion report is available for download via the link below.

Culminating the email discussion, a ‘live’ online chat session was also held on 26 June 2015 that drew over 25 participants virtually from Germany, India, Philippines, Thailand, and the United States.
