The Climate Change and Sovereign Risk webinar was part of the IIF ESG Webinar Series, which was designed to promote understanding of the rapidly evolving landscape for ESG disclosure and to align efforts to measure and track climate finance.

The webinar discussed the impact of climate change on sovereign risk and the cost of capital. It also looked into the channels through which sovereign risk can be affected, and ways of addressing climate-related sovereign risk.
