InsuResilience Global Partnership for Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance Solutions
The InsuResilience Global Partnership
The InsuResilience Global Partnership for Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance solutions was launched at the 2017 UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn.
Since its launch, more than 120 members have joined the V20 and G20+ led 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 through Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance solutions.
During its G7 Presidency, Germany has made a start on developing a “Global Shield against Climate Risks”, a move which has been unanimously supported by the G7.
The Shield gathers activities in the field of climate risk finance and preparedness together under one roof. Under the Shield, solutions to provide protection will be devised that can be implemented swiftly if climate-related damages occur.
This process is linked to contingency plans of developing countries. As a result, affected people and relevant authorities will have an easier and faster access to assistance that they would urgently require in the event of a disaster. Furthermore, the Shield will mobilize additional funds in order to meet the growing demand for finance.
InsuResilience Around the Globe
In 2021, 24 implementing programmes were operating under the InsuResilience umbrella with 324 projects in 108 countries.
The following map shows all active projects and aggregates information on the country level. The country circles indicate the number of projects per country. By clicking on a country circle, you can find out which programmes operate in the respective country, how many people in the country benefit from our solutions and how those figures disaggregate across hazards, instruments, and programmes. It is also indicated whether a comprehensive Disaster Risk Finance strategy is under development.
The different available colour shadings indicate levels of overall risk, vulnerability and readiness for financial solutions per country (only available for countries with active IGP projects).
