Webinar: Implementing the IDF's three COP26 initiatives. Actionable steps for insurers, organizations, and policymakers to advance the role of insurance in climate change
At COP26, the Insurance Development Forum’s Secretary General, Ekhosuehi Iyahen, announced three major initiatives and a new partnership (https://www.insdevforum.org/news/) all with the objective of enhancing the ability of insurers, reinsurers, and policymakers to implement more and better interventions around climate change.

• The IDF and the V20 group of vulnerable nations signed a joint agreement to build risk analytics capability where it is needed the most. The signing paves the way for the creation of a global public-private partnership programme, to be known as the Global Risk Modelling Alliance (GRMA).

• The Global Resilience Index Initiative, a multi-partner initiative will provide a globally consistent model for the assessment of resilience across all sectors and geographies. It will be a curated, open-source resource offering high-level metrics across the built environment, infrastructure, agriculture and societal exposures, with many potential applications in aggregated risk management worldwide.

• The IDF will support the Start Ready Program which aims to offer “anticipatory finance,” which can drive earlier response to people in the path of a disaster even before the disaster strikes, allowing for better advance preparation and safety measures.

Secretary General Iyahen, along with Milliman’s Chair Ken Mungan and Michael McCord of the MicroInsurance Centre at Milliman, will dig down into the details of these initiatives to understand exactly what they mean for the insurance industry, governments, and policymakers and how they can offer opportunities for all of us, while we improve the infrastructure for climate change resilience.

Join Ekhosuehi, Ken, and Michael for an action-oriented look at implementing the IDF’s COP26 initiatives.
