The Understanding Risk and Finance conference represents a global forum for policy makers and financial sector experts to discuss effective strategies and approaches in mitigating the socio-economic, fiscal, and financial impacts of disasters.
The conference provides an international platform for high level policy makers and experts working on the threats posed to security, stability and development by climate change, environmental degradation and resource scarcity.
This OSCE Security Days event will provide a forum to discuss the security risks associated with climate change as well as the security benefits of climate change mitigation and adaptation. It will also identify successful approaches to integrating security considerations into climate change policies.
