NEW APPROACHES FOR DISASTER RISK FINANCE

INNOVATION PLATFORM at the 2019 Global Platform

Overview

Well-designed Disaster Risk Finance (DRF) strategies help to ensure that governments, businesses, society as well as humanitarian organisations have the necessary resources to

better anticipate and manage the adverse consequences of climate-related disasters at the time and scale needed.

Approach

Various organisations and initiatives came together in a collective effort to showcase DRF approaches in their respective fields. We intend to inspire ambitious thinking and action

needed to manage climate change risks by giving demonstrations of working tools and platforms as well as live events and experts talks.
