Permanent Instability: Climate Risk to the Financial System

What data and analytics do we need to understand climate change as a systemic risk to the financial system? Climate risks have become a major issue of concern for regulators, monetary authorities and investors. Many organizations have launched initiatives to try to understand how climate risks could impact asset valuations and generate instability of the financial system, notwithstanding some efforts the methods needed to operationalize climate risk analysis and risk management are underdeveloped and require urgent attention.

In this session, thought leaders will address what data and analytics are needed to assess, measure and manage climate risks.
