The rising cost of adaptation

Financial flows for adaptation have increased in recent years, from $30 billion in 2017 to $46 billion in 2020. However, they remain insufficient to avoid the serious economic and human consequences of climate change, especially in developing countries. Indeed, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that the cost of adaptation will reach $140 billion to $300 billion a year by 2030, then $280 billion to $500 billion by 2050.

Studies conducted by the Global Commission on Adaptation show the strong leverage effect of investments related to climate change adaptation. Investing $1.8 trillion globally in five areas between 2020 and 2030 could yield $7.1 trillion of profits.
