India-led Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) will pitch a proposal to support the climate-change adaptation projects by island nations at the 27th session of COP27 in Egypt on November 17.

The proposal is part of India’s efforts in supporting adapting measures such as early warning about extreme weather events.

“We would be interested in supporting the island states through our three core activities--capacity building, knowledge sharing and technical assistance. The program would look at early warning systems, nature-based solutions, climate resilient infrastructure among others. Most of it is adaptation focus and the agenda also is to build on our work to get additional finance for climate resilient infrastructure,” Amit Prothi, director general, CDRI, told Business Standard recently.
