The Conference organizers are open to financial and in-kind contributions in support of the event. Contributions will be acknowledged as per agreement, for example by appropriate display of logo in conference materials. Currently, the Conference has received funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Spain. GFDRR/World Bank and the Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) have pledged their support. The CREWS initiative will support the participation of representatives and experts from small-island developing states (SIDS) and least developed countries (LDCs).
