Increasing extreme weather events are causing suffering and economic devastation throughout the
developing world. Discussions at the G7, United Nations Forum on Financing for Development and
various regional government fora are exploring tools for innovative finance to offer relief when
natural disaster strikes. Recent reports from the International Monetary Fund, the UN Conference
on Trade and Development and the Vatican highlight concerns about potential economic shocks,
increasing debt vulnerabilities, shadow finance and possible financial crisis. Some examples of
recent initiatives and proposals the session will explore include hurricane clauses, debt payment
moratoriums, model law, budget and revenue transparency provisions and natural-disaster triggered
debt restructuring.
