As the window to meet the Paris target narrows, climate adaptation will be essential

This video is the latest instalment in ESG Intelligence, a series brought to you by Invesco’s Global Debt Team. The team manages over $6 billion in international fixed income, and is passionate about sustainability and impact in emerging markets.

Recent climate data suggests that the pathway to limiting global warming to 1.5OC is narrowing – and narrowing quickly.

We could see a future with declining biodiversity and crop yields, increases in coastal flooding, and economic disruption resulting in a curtailment in global GDP. Not to mention the human and social toll.

In this video, we discuss the role climate adaptation will play in addressing this challenge, before delving into the opportunities for investors.

Frequently asked questions

Climate adaptation refers to actions taken by governments, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and companies to adjust and adapt to the current and future impact of climate risks.

The goal of climate adaptation is to render communities and ecosystems more resilient to the detrimental effects of climate impacts.

Climate transition refers to the steps that organisations and governments are taking to reduce emissions and move towards a low carbon economy.

Investing in climate resilience today will help mitigate future climate-related liabilities and costs, both direct (such as physical damage to assets) and indirect (such as higher insurance costs).
