Public sector resilience solutions explained - Watch our videos!
Swiss Re's Chairman Global Partnerships, Martyn Parker, explains why the momentum for public sector risk resilience is mounting.
WELCOME TO GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS
Building resilience to major shocks is a mounting priority for many governments. The reasons are clear: pre-emptive disaster risk management can reduce the impact of natural catastrophes and put an early halt to pandemics. Rapid insurance payouts help to save more lives, speed up recovery and reduce long-term impact on the economy. Ultimately, planning ahead makes countries and cities safer and more attractive to citizens and investors. It also strengthens their ability to meet the future.
Global Partnerships is dedicated to helping national & municipal governments, and cities to strengthen their resilience. We're also committed to improving access to insurance for risk-exposed low-income communities. Together, we can shape a more resilient world!
Sovereign insurance – protecting the public purse from the growing burden of disasters
Climate change, natural disasters and cyber attacks are some of the most acute risks keeping both citizens and political leaders awake at night. Furthermore, the public expects their chosen representatives to take swift and effective action. Find out more about how governments and insurance can collaborate to reduce long lasting impacts on the economy in this new Swiss Re publication.
Expensive Pests – can insurance help to reduce the threat of invasive species?
Students from Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies Energy, Resources and Environment Student Practicum, have just released a study entitled “Building Resilience to the Economic Threat of Invasive Species”. It discusses different challenges and opportunities to improve mitigation measures to this rising threat and to what extent insurance can play a part.
