Weathering a Risky Climate: The Role of Insurance in Reducing Vulnerability to Extreme Weather

MCII Member organisation RESULTS UK published a new policy report, titled "Weathering a Risky Climate: The Role of Insurance in Reducing Vulnerability to Extreme Weather" in the lead-up to the World Humanitarian Summit.

MCII experts supported the drafting phase of the report by providing comments, feedback, and also by contributing case studies and stories to the report.

The report, together with a series of case-studies, provides an overview of how climate risk insurance can offer one important tool to protect livelihoods and help transform society's response to increasingly severe and frequent extreme weather events. The people on the frontlines of the climate crisis are the world's poorest and most vulnerable communities. The report presents a new set of Pro-Poor Principles for Climate Risk Insurance as a gold standard for donor investments in risk financing to truly benefit these groups.
