Sarah ConwayDirector, Climate and Resilience Hub, WTW
Sarah is a Director in WTW’s Climate and Resilience Hub. Leading the Ecosystem Resilience practice within the Disaster Risk Finance and Parametrics team, she helps to design, deploy and scale pre-arranged, trigger-based financial instruments for ecosystem conservation and restoration to enhance the resilience of natural assets (e.g., coral reefs) and the livelihoods dependent on their services (e.g., fisherfolk). After spending her early career in traditional finance, she has spent the last 15 years in the conservation and climate finance space for the public and private sectors. This included, for example, several years with an Indonesian-based environmental consulting firm supporting projects across Southeast Asia and the Pacific and serving as the Lead Climate Finance Negotiator for the U.S. delegation to the UNFCCC through COP21 in Paris.
