Inclusive investment that allows the poorest to invest in climate-resilient development requires practical solutions, and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda points the way, says Nanki Kaur.
Progressive countries, including some of the world's poorest, are acting to green their economies and build resilience to climate change. There's also a growing appetite for investment in these areas. In 2012, governments and investors poured an estimated US$359 billion into projects targeting low carbon and climate resilient development.
Despite the challenges, Ethiopia hopes to capitalise on its current economic growth by becoming more resilient to the impacts of climate change while developing its economy in a carbon neutral way.
