October 27, 2023 09:00 AM 10:30 AM
This session will cover different types of improvements that could be made in houses and settlements to be more resilient to various climate hazards. Housing presents an often-overlooked opportunity to address climate adaptation and mitigation solutions in a way that profoundly benefits vulnerable populations.
Key areas for panel discussion could be:
- Building climate resilience in informal settlements through policy instruments such as : incentives/ subsidies; investments and/ or taxation
- Role of ‘people’ and communities is preparedness for climate resilience
