Managing climate risk is increasingly taking on many forms.  This UN backed initiative is undertaking regional, national and sub-national assessments where action can make a difference. They have begun with Central America followed with West Africa.  While oriented toward informing governments and aid agencies, it is also relevant at a local and enterprise level that can also consider what they identify as the most important risk drivers.

  • Risk Driver 2: Socioeconomic conditions.
  • Risk Driver 3: Land use and the built environment.
  • Risk Driver 4: Governance.
