Jim Barnardt Assistant to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator, addressed attendees to the Insurance Development Forum event at COP26, in November 2021.

He highlighted the critical role of insurance in building resilience to climate change. “Sovereign insurance programmes and regional risk pools are critical tools in our fight to protect lives and livelihoods against the natural disasters of climate change. These insurance programmes are key, country-led initiatives that can respond to the unique needs of the world’s most climate vulnerable populations.”
