Astrid ZwickHead of InsuResilience Secretariat
“The InsuResilience Global Partnership brings together diverse actors with a collective vision to strengthen the resilience of developing countries and protect the lives and livelihoods of poor and vulnerable people against the impacts of disasters and other climate risks.
In particular, we aim to enable a more reliable disaster response through the use of risk finance and insurance solutions, and promote the expansion of financial protection in developing countries as part of comprehensive disaster risk management. Ultimately, this will help to reduce humanitarian impacts, support poor and vulnerable people in recovering more quickly, and strengthen local resilience over time.
We are excited to be part of the collaborative initiative and fully support the four Principles for Sustainable Insurance. We are convinced the activities of the InsuResilience Global Partnership support the global initiative of PSI to build resilient, inclusive and sustainable communities and economies, with a particular focus on poor and vulnerable people.”
