Berne Union Climate Working Group: The continuing momentum for change

In this wide-ranging edition of the BUlletin, we look at BU’s Climate Working Group in action.

We also highlight how best ECAs can support the risk of new technologies, the goals of ECIC’s acting CEO under the South African ECA’s extended mandate, the evolution of the South American CPRI market, the challenges of covering war risks on land through the PRI and PV markets, and the extent states take responsibility for the risks of state-owned enterprises
