Global Resilience Index Initiative – demonstrator and report launch
Date: Saturday 12th November 2022
The Global Resilience Index Initiative (GRII) will announce its new demonstrator, together with an invitation to partners from all sectors to join the movement, either in supplying models and data or as part of a user community.
GRII will also release the report “Towards a Climate Risk Data Architecture: Common and Open Risk Metrics to Align Finance with Climate Resilient Development Goals”. The report will make the case for common, open metrics to build a shared language and understanding of risk, necessary for financing adaptation and resilience.
