Delivering Coherent Practical Solutions: The Program Alliance

The Program Alliance is the collaborative implementation vehicle of the Partnership. It brings together operational programmes to coordinate donor contributions to countries, in line with the overarching goals of the Partnership. It is the driving platform for the Action & Implementation workstream within the Partnership’s Vision 2025, but it will also help in shaping other workstreams.

As of 2019, the Program Alliance consists of four programmes:


In 2019, the Program Alliance came together for two meetings on the margins of the World Bank’s Spring and Annual Meetings in Washington, DC. The biannual meetings aim to discuss the progress of the Alliance’s programmes as well as collaboration and synergies, strengthen links between policylevel dialogue and implementation, and exchange lessons learned and best practices. Key topics and activities in 2019 included:

  • Development of a joint Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) framework for the Alliance with respect to the joint targets of Vision 2025.
  • Systematic engagement of the private sector and the Insurance Development Forum (IDF) with a view to broadening access to risk models and climate risk analytics.
  • Initiating an ongoing dialogue between the Program Alliance and the V20 in order to bring the operational set-up under the Partnership closer to the needs of V20 countries.

In 2020, the Program Alliance is chaired by Annette Detken, Head of the InsuResilience Solutions Fund, who took over from the former chair Olivier Mahul, Manager of the Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance Program at the World Bank.
