PRESS RELEASE UN, insurance and academic leaders sign agreement to draw upon insurance data and expertise to advance climate and disaster risk analytics and help mobilise finance for adaptation.
Signed at the IDF Summit, Global Resilience Index Initiative secures new agreements and funding to provide open, globally consistent climate risk data for governments and financial institutions to scale-up climate adaptation, resilience and loss and damage finance and protect exposed communities and economies.
As climate change accelerates, the stakes are getting higher for people, businesses and governments around the world. Putting globally consistent numbers behind who and what is most at risk, and how people, prosperity and the planet will be impacted is essential to guide capital investments in adaptation.
