Protecting Your Investment
FREE TO ATTEND CPD WEBINAR FOR REAL-ESTATE INVESTORS
9th November, 12.30-13:00 GMT
The World Economic Forum published an updated flood risk analysis in the Nature Communications Journal in September 2022, stating that 23% of the world population (1.81 billion people), currently faces significant flood risk.
The devastating floods in Western Europe in 2021, killed over 200 people and were listed as one of the top 10 biggest natural disasters worldwide by economic damage from 1980 to July 2022 (Statistia 2022).
“Under optimistic climate change scenarios (RCP 2.6), sea levels are estimated to rise up to 0.55 m by 2100, putting especially large coastal cities at risk.” - Flood exposure and poverty in 188 countries, Nature Communications Journal.
By the year 2030, the Global Assessment Report (GAR 2022), published by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), estimate that there will be 560 climate-related disasters per year, globally.
As the number of climate-related disasters increases, so does the economic cost to businesses. With an average cost of $170 billion per year across the world during the past decade, and the number of climate-related disasters predicted to continue to rise, investors must invest and adapt to be flood risk and climate resilient, mitigate and adapt to extreme weather events.
2023 will see the disclosure of climate-related risks become mandatory for investors and their portfolios of assets through frameworks such as the TCFD.
