The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) and the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) are hosting a webinar as part of our physical risk and resilience work streams.
China Water Risk (CWR) recently published their “CWR Coastal Capital Threat Series” to ‘Avoid Atlantis’, which shows that 3m of sea level rise is plausible by 2100 and that it would permanently submerge urban real estate equivalent to 22 Singapores from just 20 APAC capitals and economic hubs. This of course would include other infrastructure such as ports and airports. These cities generate US$5.7trn of GDP annually and make up a significant part of their country/territory GDP – but not all governments are acting as they should.
These five reports include an overview of the latest science on rising seas; a ground-breaking CWR APACCT 20 Index to benchmark risks; physical threats levels of 20 APAC cities; what governments are or are not doing to protect from existential threats; analyses of sovereign and clustered financial risks from GDP and trade to bank loans; as well as next steps and to-do lists for multiple stakeholders to waterproof APAC.
The webinar aims to provide a deeper dive into the findings from the reports summarising the latest science, which cities are most at risk and what to do next to waterproof your assets and portfolio.
