InsuResilience Global Partnership Annual Report 2018

2018 was again a year of extreme weather events – at the same time, it was a year of political initiatives with the goal of helping countries cope with these disas­ters. Just one year after its inception, the InsuResilience Global Partnership for Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance has brought together more than 60 members from G20 and V20 nations, civil society, international organizations, the private sector, and academia. The achievements of the partnership in its first year are shown in this report.

In this first Annual Report, the Partnership highlights the initiatives that the different actors worked on towards the Partnership’s vision. That is, 25 programs are supported in 78 countries by the commitments made in the context of the Partnership. This report shows these initiatives and showcases four country examples from different regions, which are subject to different types of perils. They will present the reader with a variety of solutions at the individual and governmental level.

The results of the first Monitoring of the Partnership’s progress in achieving its goals are as well included in the report.

The Partnership also seeks to develop an open and inclusive global multi-stakeholder community of countries, experts, and practitioners working on achieving financial protection at the political, operational, and strategic level. This community constitutes the Partnership Forum and exchanges experience, generates knowledge, promotes good practice, and raises awareness of risk finance and insurance. Some of these tools are described in the section “What else does the Partnership offer?”. Other tools, such as Risk Talk, which is our interactive platform developed in collaboration with UNFCCC and the Fiji Clearing House for Risk Transfer are also presented.
