Venue: Online

Type of Event: Virtual Event

Taking place during London Climate Action Week, this virtual event will highlight the key findings of a new policy report by SOAS University of London, Asian Development Bank Institute, WWF, and Four Twenty Seven on the impacts of climate-related physical and transition risks on sovereign credit risk and debt sustainability, as well as the public policy and financial governance implications.

The discussion will focus on the channels through which climate-related risks can affect sovereign risk and the importance of their respective impacts. It will also examine the implications for the management of public finances, the challenges facing financial supervisors and central banks, and how international financial institutions can support countries in mitigating related risks and fostering resilience.

The programme and speakers will be announced in due course and registration will open soon.
