The Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) in partnership with the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII) launched the Caribbean chapter of a project entitled “Multi Actor Partnership (MAPs) on climate and disaster risk financing and preparedness in the context of the InsuResilience Global Partnership”.
The project is global in scope and aims to build multi-actor partnerships on national, regional, and international levels, bringing together civil society, policymakers, the private sector and researchers. The objective is to reduce the negative impacts of climate change on vulnerable groups by having in-country stakeholders jointly work on poverty-oriented and human rights-based climate risk management and finance measures at the local and national level, and by bringing grassroots and national perspectives into international processes, such as InsuResilience. Other national MAP chapters include the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Laos, Madagascar, Senegal, and Malawi. On the global level, efforts are led and coordinated by CARE Germany, Germanwatch and MCII.
CPDC is the lead implementation partner for establishing MAPs in the Caribbean with focal points in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and Grenada.
By signing unto the partnership, all Caribbean stakeholders are signaling their commitment to jointly work on integrated climate and disaster risk management and finance solutions and to advocating for the adoption of such by regional policymakers.
