Overview of the Global Shield

The call by vulnerable countries within and outside UNFCCC for an adequate response to the climate crisis is loud and clear. In partnership with the V20, the G7 committed to jointly working towards a Global Shield against Climate Risks, collaborating closely with other partners.

Through this collaborative partnership, the V20 and the G7 want to scale up further action and support to address the urgent needs of poor and vulnerable people and countries facing increasing risks of losses and damages from climate change.

Increasing pre-arranged finance, which is disbursed quickly and reliably before or just after disasters happen, and expanding instruments of financial protection for governments, communities, businesses, and households can lower the impact of disasters. They can make vulnerable economies more resilient, safeguard sustainable development, and protect the lives and livelihoods of poor and vulnerable people.

It is therefore effectively contributing to the global efforts for averting, minimizing and addressing losses and damages exacerbated by climate change.
