Report Launch: Advancing Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance (CDRFI) in National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes
Climate and disaster risk finance and insurance (CDRFI) solutions can play an essential role in climate change adaptation, enabling governments, businesses, and individuals to protect their financial security in the event of shocks, and providing information and incentives for improved management of risks.
National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes will guide investments in adaptation over the coming years, whether from domestic budgets, the private sector, or international climate finance. Having CDRFI solutions better reflected in NAP processes will not only increase awareness of the role of these financial tools in a country’s adaptation journey, but also provide a basis for quickly and effectively scaling up such solutions.
This event launched a new report, analyzing the ways in which countries are integrating CDRFI solutions in their efforts to formulate and implement NAPs–as well as the missed opportunities. The analysis is a result of collaboration between the NAP Global Network and the InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP).
Prepare for the discussions by first exploring the analysis:
