Multi-Actor Partnership on Climate and Disaster Risk Financing and Preparedness in the Context of the InsuResilience Global Partnership (MAPs)

Project Overview

Climate risk and risk prevention financing mechanisms are a complex area. These include, for example, climate insurance in the agricultural sector, country risk pools, social security systems, new forecast-based finance approaches, etc. Often, there is only a small degree of transparency and understanding at the national level in vulnerable developing countries. Many times, the relevant stakeholders are not sufficiently aware of the necessary contingency plans, which leads to a delay in disbursements and their implementation in planned measures. This development is partly due to the fact that the preparation of such plans are often only carried out at a government level and that civil society or other actors are not sufficiently involved.

The project strives to establish multi-actor partnerships (MAPs) on CDRFI in its selected target countries and regions to spur the collaboration between civil society, government and private sector stakeholders. Further, we aim to enhance understanding of CDRFI instruments, build the necessary capacity of CSOs and affected population groups to enable their engagement with, and their influence on, the design and implementation of CDRFI instruments in their respective countries. Lastly, we endeavor to engage the international policy making level through active participation in and contribution to processes including the InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP) and the UNFCCC.

The consortium is led by CARE Germany and is jointly implemented by CARE, MCII, and Germanwatch. CARE, Germanwatch, and MCII, each work with a particular set of local CSOs to implement the aforementioned objectives. MCII collaborates with the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) in Barbados, and the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC) in the Philippines.
