Climate resilience through risk

Progetto concluso

The overall goal of the RES-RISK project will be to enhance climate resilience and promote adaptive capacities of the vulnerable through risk transfer options and solutions. The specific expected outcomes of the project will be (1) Vulnerable communities adopt risk transfer (insurance) products, as a part of comprehensive adaptation framework which also builds on disaster risk reduction; (2) Viable climate insurance products and models are up-scaled and mainstreamed into frameworks, policies and regulations of the Government; (3) Enhanced capacities and knowledge drive innovations in climate insurance products, by public and private sector institutions, thus meeting the demands of vulnerable communities. The project will draw from Swiss knowledge, expertise and experiences on financial instruments in risk transfer in addressing climate change. As the climate insurance solutions that are to be developed under the initiative will be generic in nature, the knowledge and insights gained could be adapted in other developing countries.
