Register now for the first edition of WEMCs exclusive Executive Training on Building Resilience to Climate Change
WEMC in collaboration with Inside Climate Service srl, the University of Padova, and colleagues at the University of East Anglia, are launching a new series of climate service focused training for business executives. Two full days of curated content tailored to business will enable attendees to make informed decisions with robust climate data. The first is to be hosted at the beautiful luxury Hotel Terme Antoniano in Montegrotto Terme, Italy, on 24th – 25th October 2022.
This Executive Training on Building Resilience to Climate Change will provide knowledge and tools to respond to climate change challenges. It is an intensive training where attendees will learn how to interpret and use climate information provided, and how to effectively use this information for planning, decision making, communication, business development and defining strategies to build long-term resilience to climate change.
The impacts to business operations, to infrastructure and to society more generally due to severe weather events and climate variability are becoming increasingly frequent and widespread. As of 2021, natural catastrophes account for US$ 265 bn in overall losses globally, of which US$ 120 bn in insured losses. This is part of an upward trend over the past few decades. Understanding Weather and Climate information is therefore becoming a necessity for all sectors, also driven by new regulatory reporting requirements.
As the changing climate is here to stay, there is an urgent need to develop adaptation and mitigation strategies to build resilience and ensure that society is well prepared to manage the risks and adapt to the impacts of Climate Change, thus minimising the loss of lives, livelihoods, crops and infrastructure. Additionally, Climate disclosures are becoming a must for almost any new venture, where organisations need to disclose to potential investors the risks and opportunities presented by Climate Change, as advocated by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures. Organisations can also use this requirement for their own benefit, as physical climate Risk Assessment can provide essential information for Capital Allocation, Strategic Planning and Weatherproofing of assets and processes. A solid Risk Assessment needs high-quality information on past climate, climate variability and climate projections, climate-related policies, and the potential use of emerging technologies.
