Capability – Economics and Finance
In Economics, we work on the valuation of wildfire impacts, and assess the human, economic, and institutional drivers of wildfire of wildfire occurrence. Our capability in Finance spans the analytics of wildfire risk impact on different asset classes, as well as its evolution along different climate pathways. We also study wildfire risk at the intersection between climate finance and climate mitigation/ adaptation, including the structuring and pricing of carbon based assets such as forestry-linked securities
