‘Climate Resilient City’ documentary highlights role of finance

The second International Climate Adaptation Summit was held in the Netherlands on 25 and 26 January. The online event included the first screening of the documentary The Climate Resilient City Explained. NextGreen provided input for the documentary based on its analysis of action on climate adaptation in the financial sector.

The 25-minute documentary shows how cities can be made climate-resilient. This is done using examples and lessons learned from a number of Dutch cities, which concluded their City Deal Climate Adaptation with this documentary. The stories emphasize the importance of collaboration between municipalities, water boards, provinces, national government, citizens, companies and financial institutions. This is completely consistent with the results of the analysis that NextGreen has been working on together with Climate-Proof Together (Samen Klimaatbestendig).

The Climate Resilient City Explained was shown during the Climate Adaptation Summit organized in the Netherlands on 25 and 26 January. During this two-day meeting, government leaders, mayors, companies and NGOs from the whole world came together to discuss and be inspired by climate adaptation efforts. It was wonderful that the results of the four-year City Deal Climate Adaptation project could be presented in this arena, including the potential partnerships with banks, investors and insurers.
