THE NEXUS BETWEEN INTERNATIONAL GENDER AND CLIMATE AND DISASTER RISK FINANCE AND INSURANCE FRAMEWORKS TO SUPPORT WITH NATIONAL ACTION

Gender-smart Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance(CDRFI) lies at the convergence of multiple international and national policy priorities and commitments. Internationally, these include the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement; the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (the Sendai Framework).

The InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP) Vision 2025, supported by the Pro-poor Principles and the Declaration on Gender, unite policymakers from these diverse policy agendas under the common vision of building the resilience of the most vulnerable to climate change through financial protection. This document sets out an overview of these international commitments relevant to improving gender-smart CDRFI solutions as a starting point to advance global learning on the theme.It provides the conceptual background for our guidance note on translating international commitments into action to achieve gender-smart Climate Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance Solutions.
