  • Funding the unfundables: long-term solutions for delivering multi-benefit FCERM  infrastructure 

Resilience to climate change is one of society’s most critical 21st Century challenges. As the frequency and severity of extreme weather events accelerates, now, more than ever we must find new ways to provide effective, sustainable and affordable solutions. A step change in how we deliver and fund our projects is needed.At a time when post-2021 FCERM policies are being developed and funding settlements are being considered, it’s time to make the case for approaches that place maximising long term community value at their heart, delivering the optimum return on public investment while addressing the increasingly dynamic nature of FCERM.

Integrated infrastructure that delivers multiple environmental, social and economic benefits and secures other key infrastructure provides more long term value for communities and society as a whole. In theory, it is also infinitely more attractive to investors. But new approaches for funding these more holistic investments are required. Using current case studies, our presentation will explore new models that are emerging to challenge traditional approaches. They are deploying systems-level thinking to maximise community resilience while delivering wider benefits and then using this to crowd-in multiple funders, delivering long term value and creating a positive, sustainable legacy.
