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!
