Margaret Kuhlow, finance practice leader at WWF, joins Emma McGarthy, programme manager of OMFIF’s Sustainable Policy Institute, to discuss how finance can be a powerful tool for addressing climate change, and how financial flows can be directed to meet the Paris agreement objectives. They discuss how building a resilient recovery from Covid-19 can help make tangible progress on climate change, the tools, data and methods that can be used by institutions to measure climate risk and how biodiversity considerations and ecosystem services can be at the forefront of risk assessments and investment impact metrics.
