First Session of the Climate Change Platform

Climate-related risks that are derived from climate change affect the global financial system. Extreme weather events and their intensity are placing significant stress on financial institutions, societies, and natural systems, and together we must be prepared to -financially- face them.

The First Session of the Curaçao Climate Change Platform was co-hosted by the CBCS on May 10 and 11, 2022, to deepen the awareness on this urgent matter.
