Published by IFCpublications
The main objective of the first set of pilot climate risk assessment studies undertaken by IFC was to test and begin to develop methods for evaluating climate risks to the private sector and to identify appropriate adaptation responses. This included analyzing barriers and gaps preventing evaluation of risks and adaptation options, and understanding the roles of different stakeholders (private and public) in addressing those constraints.
