Risk and Resilience

Around the globe, climate impacts are hitting earlier and harder than expected. The lack of investment in climate resilience raises future risks of social and political breakdowns while exacerbating the human and economic costs of climate impacts.

Risk and Resilience

 

 

Cheap, clean energy technologies alone will not be enough to deliver climate safety. If countries are to act in their national interest to accelerate the phase-out of global greenhouse gas emissions, then we need stronger political debates around climate risk.

Our work focuses on developing and promoting climate risk management models for good governance. We believe in building stronger physical, social and economic resilience to address climate mitigation.

We work across international institutions including the United Nations and Multilateral Development Banks. Our geographic expertise is rooted in Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, Latin America and the Middle East and North Africa.

Our aim is to see climate risk effectively integrated into top level decision making as well as all public and private sector investments become resilient to ensure climate safety for all.

Track record

  1. Our risk management framework in Degrees of Risk directly influenced the climate risk management strategies of multiple governments and institutions.
  2. We helped drive and shape reform to improve UN and International Financial Institutions climate policies.
  3. Through our work on the UN Climate Action Summit, we helped set the international agenda on climate resilience.

Focus areas

Climate Risk Management

Current responses to climate change are failing to manage effectively the full range of climate risks.

There is a mismatch between the analysis of the severity of climate threats and the political, diplomatic, policy and financial investment countries expend to avoid the attendant risks.

Resilience

Systematic governance reforms are necessary for delivering robust infrastructure resilience to future climate change, climate policy and associated technological changes.

Reforms need rapid implementation to avoid the next generation of infrastructure having vulnerability built-in, risking trillions of dollars of value as well as high levels of development and social impacts.
