Session Detail:

Physical risk is often seen as more remote than transition risk, particularly for wealthier countries. But COVID has taught us that risks can interact in complex ways and cascade globally. This session will draw upon the evidence on systemic risks related to physical climate shocks, including compound risks and cascading global physical risks. In this session, we will showcase the latest science in this area and identify potential hot spots of risk.
