Description The G7 Initiative on Climate Risk Insurance aims to increase access to direct or indirect insurance coverage against the impacts of climate change for up to 400 million of the most vulnerable people in developing countries by 2020.
Objectives The role of the Partnership is to promote and enable the adoption of disaster risk financing and insurance approachesas part of comprehensive disaster risk management strategies and integrated within preparedness, response and recovery plans that are anchored in country systems. It will do this through:

(1) Developing a global multi-stakeholder community that can generate and promote best practice in the use of climate and disaster risk finance and insurance (CDRFI). (2) Facilitating efficient and coordinated global action to promote climate and disaster risk finance and insurance solutions. (3) Empowering governments, businesses and households to become proactive risk managers through building capability and increasing access to knowledge and expertise, services, products and risk financing linked to disaster prevention, preparedness and response. (4) Building a network across sustainable development, social protection, disaster risk reduction, climate services and climate change adaptation communities to ensure risk financing is embedded within a comprehensive disaster risk management approach –both with respect to international fora as well as to in-country systems. (5) Taking a pro-poor approach, based on an agreed set of principles, that puts peoples’ needs at the centre of risk financing.
