World Energy perspective: The road to resilience - Managing cyber risks

This publication by the World Energy Council is developed in cooperation with Swiss Re Corporate Solutions and Marsh & McLennan Companies. Cyber is the third risk dimension investigated as part of the Financing Resilient Energy Infrastructure initiative (besides extreme weather and energy-food nexus). Drawing on insights from a network of energy industry experts, the report assesses the ways in which vulnerabilities in current and new energy infrastructures are changing. The report recommends actions that energy decision makers and stakeholders can take – individually and collaboratively – to improve the sector’s response to rising cyber threats, as part of a wider move towards resilience.

Pandemics in a changing climate - Evolving risk and the global response

Pandemic outbreaks can be economically devastating for the affected countries, overwhelming public finances and reversing hard-won development gains. The immediate economic disruption resulting from loss of life and suspended productivity can translate into lasting impediments to growth. In the current system, response mechanisms are much too slow, particularly in delivering financing to responsible counterparties. In addition, the effects of climate change will increase the inherent risk of pandemic outbreaks by changing environments and disease transmission vectors, heightening uncertainty as to the location, type and severity of the next outbreak.
