As an introductory course, this course is suited to those with little or no previous experience in climate-related finance or economics. However, a basic understanding of climate science is presumed.


Course Outline

Participants will explore a range of risk pathways that link climate and economic systems, including financial impacts associated with: physical risks related to direct and indirect exposure to climate hazards in the value chain; transition risks arising from abrupt transitions to a low-carbon economy; civil liability and litigation risks; systemic risks transmitted throughout the economy.
