InsuResilience Global Partnership at COP26


InsuResilience Global Partnership

The InsuResilience Global Partnership for Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance Solutions was launched at the 2017 UN Climate Conference in Bonn. Since its launch, more than 118 members have joined the Partnership. The Partnership aims to strengthen the resilience of developing countries and protect the lives and livelihoods of poor and vulnerable people against the impacts of disasters.

The central objective of the Partnership is to enable more timely and reliable post-disaster response and to better prepare for climate and disaster risk through the use of climate and disaster risk finance and insurance solutions, reducing humanitarian impacts, helping poor and vulnerable people recover more quickly, increasing local adaptive capacity and strengthening local resilience. This complements ongoing efforts in countries to avert, minimize and address climate and disaster risks.

InsuResilience Global Partnership Vision 2025

At the first High-Level Consultative Group (HLCG) meeting of the InsuResilience Global Partnership (‘the Partnership’) held in December 2018, members agreed on the Concept Note of the InsuResilience Global Partnership and emphasized the urgency of scaling up and accelerating risk financing in 2019 and beyond. They mandated the drafting of a Workplan by the InsuResilience Secretariat to determine objectives and activities of the Partnership until 2025. This document sets out the overall vision and four Overarching Workstreams for the Partnership by 2025.

InsuResilience Around the Globe

The InsuResilience Global Partnership is active around the globe. This map shows all active projects and aggregates country information. The country circles indicate the number of country projects of InsuResilience implementing programmes. Click on one of the countries to find out which programmes implement projects in that country, how many people in a country benefit from our solutions and whether there is a comprehensive Disaster Risk Finance strategy in place. The color levels indicate the overall risk level estimated with the InsuRisk tool.
The programme data was collected during November/December 2020 as part of our efforts to monitor progress towards our key indicators. All related figures are based on estimations by the InsuResilience Secretariat according to the Vision 2025 M&E framework. The InsuRisk overall risk levels were estimated using the InsuRisk tool.

Switzerland recognizes climate risk as one of the greatest challenges we are currently facing; it can only be overcome when governments, the private sector, civil society and academia pool in their expertise, know-how and financing to develop a common solution. Climate risk insurance is part of this solution. It is in this spirit that we look forward to join and contribute to the InsuResilience Global Partnership.

Raymund Furrer,
Head of Economic Cooperation and Development, Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO)

Why and why now? Simply because the time is right to take advantage of new technologies and increased awareness to make modern risk management solutions sustainably accessible to vulnerable and low income segments of the population, and G7’s InsuResilience initiative is an excellent platform to bring relevant actors together that can make it happen.

The poorest and most vulnerable people and countries suffer most from the impacts of extreme weather events. Public-private climate risk related insurance solutions – if they are part of a broader risk management strategy – can play a vital role in buffering these threats. Germanwatch therefore welcomes especially the pro poor focus of the InsuResilience Global Partnership and its effort to cooperate with different stakeholders.

Christoph Bals,
Policy Director, Germanwatch

Bringing insurance to those who need it most is a task that no actor can achieve individually. This is what makes InsuResilience unique: The initiative brings together partners from governments, insurance industry, international organizations and civil society to join forces and enhance the resilience of poor and vulnerable communities through climate risk insurance.

Ingrid-Gabriela Hoven,
Board Member of the GIZ

The forum provided by the InsuResilience Global Partnership enables us to develop comprehensive and complementary solutions for and with our partners from civil society and the private sector. Solutions to give quick support to people who need it most in situations that are threating their livelihood.

Climate risk insurance supports developing and emerging countries to adapt to climate change by cushioning financial impacts and providing a building block for sustainable economic growth. The insurance industry can support with risk management expertise, risk capital and innovative risk transfer solutions. The InsuResilience Global Partnership contributes with another key success factor: providing a platform for collaboration.

Ernst Rauch,
Global Head Climate & Public Sector Business Development, Munich Re

Climate risk insurance helps – in a fast and cost-efficient manner! Together with the United Kingdom, the World Bank Group and other partners, Germany is working on creating the Global Partnership on Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance Solutions, which the G20 leaders have welcomed at the Hamburg Summit.

Dr. Gerd Müller,
Former German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development

Insurance is an important tool in making communities more resilient when disaster strikes. Effective insurance regulation and supervision are fundamental for growth and maintenance of robust insurance industry. As the implementing partner of the IAIS on financial inclusion, A2ii provides input to global policy debates and draws attention to the key role of insurance supervisors in addressing resilience. Through our membership of the InsuResilience Network we look forward to working with others, pooling our collective expertise, to ensure appropriate insurance solutions are available to those most in need.

Hannah Grant,
Head of Secretariat, Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii)

France has been supportive of InsuResilience since the beginning, and will continue to do so. In the spirit of the Paris Agreement on climate change, we need to join forces and be proactive when it comes to protection against disasters.

Cyrille Pierre,
Director for Sustainable Development at the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs

I support this bold initiative and hope the public and private sectors rally behind it to spread proactive resilience globally.

Through InsuResilience, the G7 makes a powerful statement that the world needs to be more proactive in coping with climate-related disaster risk, not waiting for disaster to strike but focusing on ex ante risk management.

Dolika Banda,
CEO of African Risk Capacity Insurance Company Limited (ARC Ltd)

The UK is proud to be part of InsuResilience. We strongly believe in the potential of insurance to enhance resilience by providing developing countries with faster and more reliable funding after natural disasters. We know from experience that a faster response is more efficient, saves lives and livelihoods, and helps countries recover more quickly.

Rachel Turner,
Interim Director General, Economic Development Department for International Development (DFID), UK

The InsuResilience Global Partnership offers much-needed new resources, visibility and opportunity for synergy among major insurance initiatives. CCAFS hopes the strengths of the agricultural research-for-development community will add value to other efforts to bring insurance to bear on risk-related agricultural challenges across the developing world.
