Webinar Protecting Against Climate-Risks And Disasters:Tools For Ministries Of Finance

The frequency and severity of climate-induced shocks is rapidly increasing and negatively impacting budgets and debt worldwide. The shocks are often direct through the substantial costs associated with rebuilding after floods, droughts, hurricanes, and wildfires, and indirect from increases in food and commodity prices. There is a range of financial tools Ministries of Finance can use to protect budgets against these shocks. This interactive webinar will explore some of these tools and how they can be applied, including short case studies.
