Financial Dynamics of the Environment Risks, Impacts, and Barriers to Resilience

United Nations Environment Programme (2014)

This Working Paper summarizes the underlying logic for why the financial sector should care about the state of the environment and environment-related risks

it reviews the main structural barriers that could prevent the financial system from managing such issues

it also identifies the main researchers and organizations undertaking work on these topics internationally. The paper should be a useful initial reference guide to those concerned with both how environment-related risks could affect the financial sector and what financial institutions can do to manage such risks."
