In light of the ongoing pandemic, holistic approaches on disaster relief and preparedness are more vital than ever. Therefore, the ISF especially welcomes concepts for insurance products for target groups highly affected by the pandemic, e.g.

  • governments and communities
  • (M)SMEs
  • poor and vulnerable households

in order to prove additional funding for measures such as

  • emergency relief
  • business interruption
  • food security
  • public buildings and critical infrastructure

mitigating the effects of compound risks due to climate change such as flood, wind/storm, excess rain, drought/heat waves, cold spells (in combination with other perils).
