The High-Level Consultative Group (HLCG), the highest governing body and strategic driver of the InsuResilience Global Partnership, endorsed the Declaration on Gender in its latest strategic meeting held in September 2020. The aim of the InsuResilience Global Partnership Declaration on Gender is to address differential gender impacts of Climate and Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance solutions in the operationalization of the Partnership’s Vision 2025. Building on the acknowledgment that men, women, and children are differently impacted by climate change, the HLCG prioritized the integration of gender dimensions in all their diversity, including specific needs and roles of men, women, and children, within the climate and disaster risk management framework.
This Declaration sets out the InsuResilience Global Partnership’s multi-stakeholder aspirational and voluntary commitment to address these differential gender impacts. This would include both economic and physical impact, in the operationalization of the Partnership’s Vision 2025 to provide CDRFI to 500 million poor and vulnerable people in developing countries, in both urban and rural settings.
