Solutions for the sustainable development of communities.
The Advancing Environmental Risk Management (AERM) project underlies the development of the NFCA's ENCORE (Exploring Natural Capital Opportunities, Risks and Exposure) tool. ENCORE, which is based on the AERM project's comprehensive database, is a visualization tool that makes the outputs publicly available.
The AERM project aims to identify and structure information on ecosystem services and natural capital assets. This information is needed by financial institutions to assess their exposure to natural capital-related risks for consideration in risk management processes.
The project aims to ultimately embed the systematic consideration of natural capital risks and opportunities within models of financial risk.
