It has become more urgent for Asia to build climate-resilient infrastructure. While huge investments have been poured into energy projects that mitigate and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, there is a dearth of capital flowing into adaptation projects.

This panel discussion, organized as part of the Tech Investment Summit: Scaling Up Greentech by Financial Times and Nikkei, will examine ways to engage investors to look into adaptation projects.

Speakers include Anouj Mehta, country director at Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Thailand Resident Mission and unit head of the ADB-managed ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility, and Anders Nordheim, senior vice-president, Asia Sustainable Finance, WWF.
