Adaptation and resilience: Managing climate risk

Climate change, population shifts and increasing conflicts all mean that the world’s disaster risk is rising. Natural disasters, extreme weather and environmental degradation can cause significant damage; with the power to disrupt harvests, deplete fisheries and damage livelihoods. How do we prepare the financial system? How can technology help us to reduce vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change? We talk to experts and innovators and draw out examples of how technology and AI are playing a crucial role in managing climate risk.
