State of Climate Extreme Events in India: Are We Prepared?

10 Dec 2020   |   1430–1600 hrs IST

India is already experiencing a preview of the large-scale disasters and socio-economic upheaval that could be created by climate extreme events without adequate mitigation strategies. India’s future growth is now intricately linked to climate risks. Investments in hard infrastructure, such as housing, transport, power, and industries especially along the coasts will be at risk, while vulnerable communities with low adaptive capacity will be most severely hit. Additionally, with weather-related insurance losses mounting, there are warning signs of climate change triggering the next financial crisis.

During the session, we will discuss how mainstreaming climate risk assessment can help relevant stakeholders make climate-proof decisions and investments.
