Webinar by the e-MFP's Green Inclusive and Climate-Smart Finance Action Group

Digital climate risk management: the case of Fundación Génesis Empresarial

The webinar will focus on a successful collaboration between YAPU Solutions and the Guatemalan MFI Fundación Génesis Empresarial, on the development of a highly customised climate risk management system. The system leverages satellite data as well as external exposure data from CIAT/CGIAR on climate risk patterns. Furthermore, it includes data by FAO to determine the climate sensitivity of given crops. The underlying concept, which helps to assess the climate risk for a given end customer (mostly smallholder farmers) is climate vulnerability. The analysis provided by the climate risk management system not only provides an analysis at the end-customer level, but also at the portfolio level. Since the increase of productivity and resilience through the financing of climate solutions (or NbS) is a particular goal of the MFI, the system also allows for the green microcredit verification. Join this session to learn all about how a comprehensive digital climate risk management system can be established while taking into account existing technological infrastructure, and how such a system can facilitate the integration of climate risks in credit decisions.

Speakers: Christoph Jungfleisch, CEO and Founder of YAPU Solutions & Ricardo Romero, Project Manager at Fundación Génesis Empresarial

Moderator: Natalia Realpe Carrillo, Klaus Töpfer Sustainability Fellow at the IASS, CEO of Hedera Sustainable Solutions and Co-Head of the Green Inclusive and Climate Smart Finance Action Group
