Organiser: Momentum for Change

Role for MCII: Award winners for the 'Financing for Climate Friendly Investment' category


Momentum for Change: Financing for Climate Friendly Investment was launched in November 2012 to recognize successful financial innovations for adaptation and climate mitigation. It showcases climate activities promoting low-carbon growth and highly resilient communities through the use of innovative financing mechanisms.


MCII was nominated and awarded for their lighthouse activity: Climate Risk Adaptation and Insurance in the Caribbean.


Insurance solutions can play a significant role in dealing with the consequences of climate change. Mirroring its approach at the international level we have convened public and private stakeholders to develop the Livelihood Protection Policy (LPP), a parametric index-based micro-insurance product as a response to the vulnerability poverty nexus in the Eastern Caribbean.
