After the COP26, how can we take action to integrate the financial risks linked to climate change into our activities?

The objective of this Mini-MOOC is to provide keys to understanding the financial risks related to climate change. This course will enable you to understand what physical and transition risks are, the challenges they pose for regulators and financial institutions, and how taking them into account can contribute to the transformation of the economy.

This Mini-MOOC Financial Climate Risks developed with AFD partners is one that will provide you with complementary approaches explained by experts in the field.


This one-hour course, available in three languages, will help you understand what these risks are, why the financial sector is interested in them, and will shed light on the approaches of regulators and banks, through the concrete example of our group.
