| Amman, Jordan

Registration

A Training Workshop on “Climate Change & the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)” in Amman, Jordan. The workshop will be organized by UNEP FI and in collaboration with the Association of banks in Jordan.

The objective of the event is to sensitize the staff of financial institutions on the importance of the negative impacts of climate change on the economy and biodiversity, identifying the most vulnerable sectors in this context. At the same time, it seeks to present tools that would allow financial institutions to manage potential physical and transition risks in their business portfolios and consider opportunities, base on the need to preserve biodiversity and face the consequences of climate change. It also aims to support banking organizations as lenders carry out TCFD-responsive assessments & disclosures, and is based on the groundbreaking work of the UNEP FI pilot groups on TCFD adoption.
