Many businesses accept that taking action to adapt to climate change makes good business sense. However, for some it is not always clear where they should invest their money; which climate change adaptation actions are most cost-effective? A ground-breaking new study, jointly funded by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) has investigated the market opportunities for adaptation in Turkey, in the hope of guiding investment flows. To find out more about the research Acclimatise's Will Bugler interviews Dr Craig Davies, Senior Manager for Climate Change Adaptation at EBRD and Vladimir Stenek, Senior Climate Change Specialist at IFC. 

The ‘Pilot Climate Change Adaptation Study: Turkey, identifies priority actions for Turkish businesses to increase their climate resilience. The research, undertaken by Acclimatise, Mavi Consultants and COWI, aims to help businesses identify the measures that make business sense.
