MCII teams up with USP, UWI, UNU-EHS, and PFIP to enhance knowledge sharing & networking between regions and among different actors

Small island countries in the Caribbean and the Pacific face unrelenting challenges associated with climate change. In order to facilitate South-South collaboration and research on climate and disaster risk finance and insurance solutions to these challenges, MCII is teaming up with the University of the South Pacific, the University of the West Indies, the United Nations University Institute of Environment and Human Security, and the Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme to launch the Climate Risk Insurance Research Collaboration (CRIRC).

MCII will lead the collaboration, which will carry out research on the ground in the Caribbean and Pacific Islands and produce academic and policy publications.
