MCII's contribution to a G7 initiative on Climate Risk Insurance

The G7 has a key role to play in pushing this agenda and supporting its implementation. By initiating a Climate Risk Insurance Initiative (InsuResilience) it acknowledged the central role insurance plays in a comprehensive climate risk management approach. As a risk transfer instrument, climate risk insurance is able to mitigate adverse consequences of climate-change related extreme weather events and can minimize the cost and optimize the timing of meeting post-disaster funding needs without compromising development goals, fiscal stability and help to alleviate human suffering while decreasing the loss of livelihoods. Therefore, the overall objective of InsuResilience is to stimulate the creation of effective climate risk insurance markets in relevant regions worldwide.

Climate Risk Adaptation and Insurance in the Caribbean

By linking the Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility (CCRIF) with a prominent microinsurance broker (MicroEnsure) and the world's biggest reinsurer (Munich Re), the programme intends to overcome barriers in extending access to risk management solutions including insurance and risk reduction to low-income communities in the Caribbean. As the programme leader, MCII functions as a bridge to feed lessons learned and good practices of the programme to international policy processes, such as the UNFCCC Climate Negotiations, to demonstrate the value added of this unique approach in the context of catalysing useful approaches for climate change adaptation in vulnerable areas.
