ClimINVEST suite of scientific factsheets - building understanding

This suite of scientific factsheets aim to build financial decision-makers' understanding about physical climate risk assessment, data needs, climate modeling and extreme events. 

Bridging the gap between climate data and needs of financial institutions

Financial institutions face challenges in identifying and processing data on climate hazards to assess physical climate risk and fulfil TCFD-reporting requirements. Results from ClimINVEST and similar projects will be used to produce a dataset of climate hazards that will be a reference for assessing physical climate risk for different sectors and assets, in line with TCFD recommendations.
