About the Event

Business Environment Council, with the support of The Rockefeller Foundation, organises this half-day workshop to explore and discuss the risks and opportunities that climate change events are creating for business in Asia.

As shown by the massive floods in Thailand in late 2011 that disrupted global supply chains and Super Typhoon Haiyan that devastated the Philippines, the frequency and intensity of major climate events is set to accelerate as the global climate system continues to change. This first of its kind event is facilitated by Ashvin Dayal, Associate Vice President & Managing Director, Asia of The Rockefeller Foundation, will take stock of current levels of business continuity and assess them against the reality of major climate events.
Through interactive scenarios and visioning exercises, participants with better understand their own organization’s resilience and the ways in which city-wide resilience efforts can impact their plans. Beyond preparedness, this workshop will also explore how businesses can develop new products or services that can be used by cities to respond to these challenges.
