Scaling up climate risk and impact assessment: governance and methods

 

Finance must be part of the solution to climate change. Development banks have a crucial role to play to scale up the global market for climate action. Crucially, we need to go beyond the traditional finance approach to risk-return in order to account for climate physical risk and energy transition risk. Moreover, we also need new methods to assess the impact of portfolios on climate mitigation and adaptation objectives.

These two side events provide actionable information on the current progress driven by development organizations and professionals of sustainable finance, as well as the contribution of academic research in addressing the major challenges ahead to achieve the Paris Agreement .
