A Discussion on potential impacts of climate risks for European Development Finance Institutions in 2023

Monday, April 17, 2023
60 minutes

High Inflation and increasing interest rates are putting a strain on emerging markets globally. At the same time, many developing countries are seeing the impacts of physical climate risks play out, with Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) facing calls to ramp up their climate finance commitments. Is this significant shift leading to a different risk profile for the banks?

Placing a spotlight on the realities and experiences of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Investment Bank (EIB), in this webinar, we seek to consider the current challenges and solutions in managing climate risk within development finance. Topics will include: 

  • Technical challenges in climate risk assessment, in general, and in developing countries in particular and the solutions required to address them.
  • The role data providers can play in enhancing and further supporting risk management and mitigation activities.
