Description

Adaptation Can’t Wait is a message that will resonate through the Global Adaptation Institute’s (GAIN) 2012 Annual Meeting & Scientific Convening High-level presenters and panelists from AECOM, Baker & McKenzie, PepsiCo, Ernst & Young, Swiss Re, The World Bank, The Kresge Foundation and other prominent organizations as well as ministers of environment and commerce will partake in open dialogue on the subject of adaptation and how the private sector can create actionable solutions.

The high level of interest in this annual event speaks to GAIN’s success thus far in raising awareness of the importance of adaptation. Record insurance losses from catastrophic disasters, a continued rise in global food prices and urbanization outpacing the ability of cities to provide proper sanitation and infrastructure prove that now is the time for the public and private sectors to tackle these challenges together.
