Europa Re is proud to announce that on October 2020 became a member in the InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP), a community dedicated to strengthening the resilience of developing countries to climate events and to protect the lives and livelihoods of poor and vulnerable communities against the impacts of disasters.

Natural disasters are a major impediment to the development in many countries, undermining sustainable growth, threatening earlier achievements in poverty alleviation and leading to loss of lives and livelihoods. Due to climate change, extreme weather events are expected to increase in frequency and intensity.  In this challenging environment, the role of the Partnership is to promote and enable the adoption of disaster risk financing and innovative insurance approaches as part of comprehensive disaster risk management strategies, integrated with preparedness, response and recovery plans anchored in country systems. 

Europa RE as a new member in the partnership is eager and excited to work with more than 75 partners from governments, civil society, international organizations, private sector and academia who are dedicated and committed in closing the protection gap and strengthening resilience in the long run. ERe will share applicable expertise, tools, products and innovative solutions for financial risk management, contribute to public–private partnership, identify information gaps and usability of financial risk solutions, thus supporting the IGP work towards achieving its vision and objectives.

The company will share its experience and in-depth knowledge thought its involvement in the Risk Data and Integrated Approaches working groups and will be an active participant in the Gender working group.
