Climate change adaptation: investments remain insufficient
In the face of climate urgency, the necessary adaptation
Sources: GIEC 2022
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.
Financing climate change adaptation: an investment for the future
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.

In its 2019 report, IPBES notes “unprecedented” and accelerating extinction rates.
