Webinar: Today’s Financial System for Tomorrow’s Climate Resilience

29 May 2019 | Webinar

UNEP FI members from banking, insurance and investment are invited to this presentation of UNEP FI’s paper on adaptation finance by the lead authors, Stacy Swann and Alan Miller of Climate Finance Advisors. The paper was submitted to the Global Commission on Adaptation (GCA) in April 2019 as a key building block in the drafting of the GCA’s flagship report for the UN Climate Summit in September 2019. The GCA was launched in October 2018 to accelerate adaptation action in the face of increasing global temperatures, extreme weather events and rising sea levels. The paper provides recommendations for financial institutions including integration in risk management systems and improved data & metrics. For more information, please refer to our webpage on adaptation finance: https://www.unepfi.org/climate-change/adaptation-finance/

The webinar will take place at 16:00 CEST so is aimed at members in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. A webinar for members in Asia and the Pacific will be held in June.

Speakers:
Remco Fischer (UNEP FI)
