Root Capital introduced CCAFS data on climate change risk into its process for underwriting and prioritizing loans to producer organizations in cocoa, coffee, and other commodity and food crop supply chains across 20+ countries. Climate vulnerability analysis by CCAFS identified regions of the global tropics where agriculture is particularly exposed to climate change risk. CCAFS analysis was translated into a climate change hotspot indicator to inform the underwriting of loans and formally launched in January 2017.
