Ambition, Action, Impact

The IDF Summit is the global flagship event of the climate and disaster risk finance and insurance community. It brings together members of the Partnership and the wider resilience and development community to debate pressing issues, exchange knowledge and share best practices and innovations.

The 2023 Summit was focused on the theme “Ambition, Action & Impact”. Concerted ambition as we build towards the decade of delivery for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). An ambition which must be matched by Action and Impact focused on those who need it most and by those with the ability to deliver.

In driving impact, the IDF Summit called for a systematic shift and urgency in forging partnerships across the public and private sectors that can bring efficiency and scale in implementation that will be required to meet our collective expectations of the decade.
