The Systemic Resilience Forum (SRF) - with over 50 members across governments, international organisations, financial institutions and technical experts – supports investment and policy decision-makers to more effectively understand and manage the exposure of social, economic and biodiversity value to physical climate risks.

Goals and Deliverables
To achieve our vision of mobilising finance at scale for resilient investments, the SRF has set a number of key goals and deliverables.
1. National Investment Prioritisation Tool
Helping national and local decision-makers to assess and understand the exposure of social, economic and biodiversity value at risk in given infrastructure networks.
2. Systemic Resilience Metrics (or set of metrics)
Demonstrating how an entity, sovereign or city’s macro- and socio-economic risk is reduced, as a result of properly integrating physical climate risks in decision-making including through the investment prioritisation tool.
3. Scaling Up Pilot Projects
Building upon successful national pilot projects, refine and scale additional sovereign and sub-national pilots, particularly in underrepresented geographies in CCRI.
Jamaica - Building
Jamaica is the first pilot country where the effectiveness of SRF deliverables in building national resilience has been tested.
In Jamaica, CCRI, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office, the Green Climate Fund and the University of Oxford in collaboration with the Government of Jamaica are piloting the development and implementation of a dynamic investment prioritisation tool.
The pilot project examines the exposure of the transport, water and energy sectors to physical climate risk over a given period of time. Having identified risk ‘hot spots’, the tool then indicates where investments in climate resilience could be made with most impact, including opportunities for nature-based solutions to enhance traditional hard infrastructure approaches.
Ultimately, these tools are enabling government and local policymakers to protect and maximise socio-economic value within infrastructure networks.
