The Role of Finance in Building Resilience

The Insights for Action seminar series explores how researchers and practitioners within and beyond Oxford are using research insights to drive social change.

Co-hosted by the Skoll Centre and the Saïd Business School Sustainability Community of Interest, this seminar will explore how finance can be better used to encourage resilience building and climate adaptation. Drawing on experiences from researchers and practitioners across impact investing, philanthropy and multilateral agencies, we will explore what we mean by resilience building, key actors, and why action is needed; the trade-offs inherent in resilience building; and the kinds of financing we need to build resilience and support climate adaptation globally.
