Feeling the Heat: From risk analytics to resilience with the latest-generation climate physical risk models
Asian societies and economies will become increasingly vulnerable to climate risk in the coming decades. Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa have a high number of low-lying densely populated coastal areas, which are highly exposed to flood and typhoon risk. Significant increases in heat and humidity are also expected across the region, with extreme precipitation forecast in some areas but drought anticipated in others. From a global perspective the Asia Pacific region is on the frontline of climate change. 
Our vulnerability assessment finds that regional impacts from climate hazards differ and are most pronounced in South Asia (10%-18% of GDP at risk) and is high for Central Asia, Middle East and North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa.* 
To navigate these challenges, it is critical that market participants access robust climate modelling tools to understand their exposures and inform decisive mitigation and adaptation strategies. But climate physical risk scenario analysis is no easy challenge, requiring the overlay of climate models, geospatial data, ownership mapping and vulnerability pathways to develop actionable financial impact analysis.
During this webinar, we will explore practical approaches to climate physical risk scenario analysis including:
● What latest generation climate models cover and what insight they provide
● The importance of geospatial data and how to leverage proprietary and third-party asset data
● How robust ownership mapping can support decision making across the financial value chain, from assets to large portfolios
● How the financial impact of climate physical risk can be quantified
● What technology options are available to transform large volumes of data into actionable insight
