GRII Launch at COP27

COP27 - GRII launches new demonstrator and report

We are delighted to announce the GRII’s demonstrator and report at COP27. See below for our press release; more on the report, demonstrator and use cases; and our call to action.

Report: Towards a climate risk data architecture

The GRII has launched a new discussion paper at COP27, Towards a Climate Risk Data Architecture: Common and Open Risk Metrics to Align Finance with Climate Resilient Development Goals.

This report showcases the need for – and the benefit of having – a globally consistent, open baseline dataset of climate risk and resilience metrics as a global public good to help mobilise finance for adaptation.

The Global Systemic Risk Assessment Tool (G-SRAT) is the new Data and Analytics Portal for the GRII.

This tool aims to support climate adaptation decision-making by identifying spatial vulnerabilities and risks under current and future climate scenarios.

Find out more and try the demonstrator.

GRII is an open collaborative initiative, rather than just a data product.

Adaptation and resilience are missing a common language to unlock broad action.

By engaging with GRII – whether to input as we develop common metrics, or by providing data to integrate into our evolving visualiser – your organisation can help build a more effective future for adaptation and resilience.

Our report showcases ways GRII data can be applied to support organisations with financial climate risk challenges, including:

  • Disclosures
  • Infrastructure financing
  • Stress testing
  • Disaster risk financing

Our teams collaborate across public, private and academic sectors to develop datasets, tools and services. If you are interested in developing a use case or collaborating with GRII, please contact us.
