Held in conjunction with the International Monetary Fund/World Bank Group 2020 Annual Meetings, this virtual event highlighted the key findings of a new policy report by SOAS University of London, ADBI, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), and 427 on the impacts of climate-related physical and transition risks on sovereign credit risk and debt sustainability, as well as the public policy and financial governance implications.

The discussion focused on the channels through which climate-related risks can affect sovereign risk and the importance of their respective impacts. It also examined the implications for the management of public finances, the challenges facing financial supervisors and central banks, and how international financial institutions can support countries in mitigating related risks and fostering resilience.
