The InsuResilience Global Partnership for Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance Solutions brings together countries, civil society, international organizations, the private sector, and academia. It particularly builds on a collaboration between the G20 and the V20 countries.
Membership in the InsuResilience Global Partnership enables countries and stakeholders to engage with and shape a growing community around building financial protection to disasters. This entails multiple benefits, such as access to knowledge, finance, expertise, and services. It also provides the opportunity to contribute to future policy, practice, and investments.
Working through the Program Alliance partners, governments can pursue customized training and assistance, to identify cost-effective financial mechanisms for their countries. International development partners can work together to meet strategic development priorities. Civil society and NGOs can engage with stakeholders on all levels and help to promote best practice; while the private sector can test the usability of existing insurance solutions, be guided in product innovation, and foster market development.

The Partnership is inclusive and open to stakeholders aligned to the vision of the Partnership.
