    The Economist’s Climate Risk Virtual Week 2020

    Overview

    Climate change will reshape every aspect of the global economy, from politics to migration, financing to supply chains. Markets are demanding greater transparency on the climate risks that firms face. So, too, are regulators: in 2019 the Bank of England announced plans for climate stress tests for banks. Such demands will only increase.

    Over five days, The Economist will ask what role governments and central banks should play in embedding climate-change data into financial decision-making. How can companies overcome the first-mover disadvantage associated with publishing their risk exposures? Does technology reinvent the rules of risk management? And how can the public and private sectors work together to combat what has become the greatest risk of all?

    Our climate-risk content

    The Economist has called for a clear-headed approach to tackling the complex issues around climate change. We have explored the urgency of managing climate risk across our events, newspaper and fortnightly newsletters.

    New for 2020

    Climate change has a significant impact across a wide range of industries, causing a series of transitional, legal and financial risks. After the success of its inaugural summit in 2019, Climate Risk Virtual Week will feature critical global insights from industry leaders on how to better measure, manage, mitigate and report climate-related risks.

    The programme will explore the unique opportunity which the pandemic has provided to governments and businesses to speed up the transition to a low carbon economy. In addition, participants will hear about multiple risks, assess evolving regulatory and disclosure frameworks. We explore the role of climate-related data and the new road to COP26.

    With the virtual format this year, we plan to host more than 600 attendees across the week with an even broader geographic range than before. Climate Risk Virtual Week will be a premier forum bringing together corporates and public-sector executives to discuss and debate the current state of climate risk and accelerating future action. We provide a platform to better assess climate risks, providing financial and systematic level stability.

    Time: 1 PM – 5 PM BST / 8 AM – 12 PM EST

    3rd Annual APAC Microfinance Forum

    With a growing number of Fintech platforms and increased digitalization infiltrating the microfinance industry, the pressure to adapt and implement these technologies in order to stay competitive and innovative puts MFIs to the test. While some microfinance industries excel at digitalization, others struggle to keep up. Part of the challenge of technological transformation is the widespread skepticism of leaving behind traditional operations to adopt more digital ways of working. How well the industry has adapted to these changes and challenges varies from region to region and opens a multitude of possibilities to learn and start shifting from the basics to more complex areas of digitalization.

    Changing social expectations, like increased gender equality, and unprecedented external factors, like the outbreak of COVID-19, have major influences on the operational success of MFIs around the APAC region and have become common points of concern. This conference will be a platform for experts and industry professionals operating within microfinance to convene, network, and share knowledge and experiences. The common themes and topics of discussion will include the difficulties of digitalization and key trends for microfinance industry-players, challenging traditional working systems and innovating, and becoming more agile to changing external factors.

    2020 SEEP Annual Conference: Disruptive Collaboration

    This year’s conference will engage hundreds of practitioners from around the world in disruptive collaboration to unlearn, learn and take collective action.

    Our flagship event, the SEEP Annual Conference gathers leading global thinkers and doers, at the forefront of economic inclusion and social empowerment efforts across the world. The SEEP Annual Conference is a unique forum where we debate bold ideas and learn openly from our failures, and challenge our own assumptions to build the next generation of development solutions in and beyond market systems.

    The SEEP Annual Conference will be very different this year. In response to the rapidly evolving global crisis and with our steadfast commitment to creating a meaningful and safe experience for our community, we know that the in-person 3-day conference model of years past will not be possible this year. We have decided to move to an entirely online forum with enhanced interaction and dynamic learning spaces, taking place on October 26-30, 2020.

    The COVID-19 pandemic and the social and economic upheaval it has caused, has resulted in deep uncertainty and has accelerated SEEP’s own journey of becoming a more agile network and team. The 2020 conference theme, Disruptive Collaboration: navigating a radically uncertain world, embodies this discomfort.

    European Microfinance Week

    It has been a difficult few months and during this time we at e-MFP have engaged with our members and friends to mobilize resources and adapt our activities to best mitigate the effects this pandemic brings to our sector and the vulnerable people we as a community serve.

    One of our flagship activities is European Microfinance Week held annually in November and with it in mind, we have been closely monitoring the public health situation globally. Now more than ever it’s vital to connect and gather together the inclusive finance world to find solutions to the most pressing issues of the sector.

    However in the face of the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve taken the decision to gather responsibly and this year EMW 2020 will go online 16th – 20th November.

    We are considering how this special edition online EMW 2020 might look like and how best to deliver the EMW goals of exchanging knowledge & connecting the financial inclusion sector and have reached out to our members for their input.

    More information will be available soon!
