By bringing together industries and leaders across the finance and investment world, the Coalition is pioneering solutions that are both innovative and practical to ensure all infrastructure investments incorporate physical climate risks and advance climate resilience.
Investments in infrastructure assets and networks – water and sanitation, energy, transport, housing – are critical, forming the backbone of economies and societies, and the growing impacts of climate change are challenging the integrity of existing and new infrastructure systems.
Yet, it is unclear to what extent these infrastructure investments integrate physical climate risks – from temperature and rainfall variations to floods, droughts, and more extreme weather events - into their design and financing.
As long as physical climate risks fail to be incorporated into investment decision-making – due to a lack of regulation, data and other resources - investors will have little incentive to change how they plan, design and finance large-scale infrastructure to build long-term resilience to climate change risks into their projects.
By advancing more efficient investment decision-making practices, we will see lives and economies in developing and developed regions become more resilient.
