Report on the Third InsuResilience Global Partnership Forum 2019 Strengthening adaptation and resilience in the Caribbean, Latin and Central America: the role of climate risk finance and insurance

This report summarizes key takeaways from the third InsuResilience Global Partnership Forum which took place on December 9, 2019, on the margins of COP25 in Madrid, Spain. The Forum focused on Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance (CDRFI) Solutions in the Caribbean, Latin and Central American regions with exchanges from all over the globe. Over 150 representatives from G20, V20 and other countries, international
organizations, civil society, the private sector and academia
came together to promote and enable the adoption of holistic climate risk management solutions. The InsuResilience Global Partnership (“the Partnership”) has the vision to strengthen the resilience of developing
countries and protect the lives and livelihoods of poor and vulnerable people from the impacts of disasters. It aims to achieve this by closing the protection gap through climate and disaster risk finance and insurance solutions to facilitate timely and reliable post-disaster response. The annual Global Partnership Forum is the largest in-person gathering of Partnership Members from across the globe. The full-day event is a platform to exchange experience and knowledge and to raise awareness about risk finance and insurance by engaging all stakeholders of the Partnership.
The first two Partnership Forums took place along the sidelines of COP23 in Bonn in 2017 and COP24 in Katowice in 2018.
