Systemic climate risk is a relatively new addition to the climate risk conversation, although it has grown rapidly in recent years. In some respects systemic climate risk events are the elephant in the room of both societal and business climate risk assessment. Some of the big systemic risk questions include:
- What are the different ways in which systemic climate risks might manifest?
- What’s the potential timing of systemic climate risk events?
- What are the potential economic implications of systemic climate risk events?
- What’s the worst case for systemic climate risks?
These are the kinds of questions the Climate Web, based on 20,000 hours of knowledge curation, can help you explore. This Lite Roadmap organizes some of the resources available to you.
Key Index Entries include:

As a bonus, here are some recent additions to the Climate Web you might find thought-provoking that relate specifically to the topic of this Lite Roadmap. They represent just the smallest sliver of what’s organized in the Climate Web with the goal of facilitating access to your actionable knowledge. Note that links with “$$” sit behind paywalls and we can’t provide direct access. But we are always working to go through those sources to extract key idea and graphics to share under “fair use” rules.

NOTE: Accessing the Climate Web via Roadmap hyperlinks can be a bit disconcerting if you’re not familiar with TheBrain software’s basic functionality, which you can explore via the Basic Navigation link at right. If you do explore some of the links, please remember that Open Access to the Climate Web (via the cloud) is both much slower and less powerful than Premium Access to the Climate Web (which allows you to download the Climate Web to your computer AND take advantage of TheBrain’s superior desktop and mobile softwares).
To clearly see the differences between a Lite Topical Roadmap and a Premium Topical Roadmap, you can take a look at both versions of the Under-Estimating Climate Risks Roadmap:
The Premium Systemic Climate Risk Roadmap digs much deeper into the topics already flagged at the top of this page, among others. Representing hundreds of hours of research and knowledge curation, the Premium Roadmap links together together explanatory materials, topical headings, individual reports, news stories, videos, and websites, curated topical dashboards for exploring key topics, and even individual ideas and graphics the Climatographers have extracted from a wide range of key sources. The Premium Systemic Climate Risk Roadmap walks you through:
- An overview of systemic climate risk analysis
- An overview of systems thinking as applied to climate change
- Societal worst case climate change
- Business worst case climate change and policy response
- Stranded assets - who said what when?
- Long-tailed systemic climate risks
- Global food crises as systemic risk
- Future pandemics as systemic risk
- And much more
