FutureWater supported the Asian Development Bank with the organization of a regional workshop on climate and disaster risk-informed investments, which was held in Bangkok on 22-23 June.
The objective of the workshop was to foster the integration of climate and disaster risk information into development agendas, to enhance resilience, ensure sustainability of development investments, and promote long-term economic stability. The workshop brought together representatives from ministries of finance, planning, climate change, disaster management as well as central and national development banks from Armenia, Bhutan, Fiji, Georgia, Lao PDR, Mongolia, Nepal, Thailand, Tonga, and Uzbekistan.
FutureWater provided several sessions on climate risk information, climate and disaster risk tools, risk assessment methodologies, and chaired a panel session. FutureWater is currently working with the ADB to develop a next-generation tool for climate risk assessments of investment projects. The workshop was under a regional TA supported by the Government of Austria.
