Partner Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII)

Date of submission 01/03/2009

Description

MCII Action pledge

In line with its four objectives

  1. To facilitate insurance-related solutions to help deal with the impact of climate change
  2. To conduct and support pilot projects for the application of insurance-related solutions
  3. To promote insurance-related approaches in cooperation with other organizations and initiatives
  4. To identify and promote loss-reduction measures

MCII strives to support Parties with technical and other information that will enable a sound discussion of the benefits of insurance mechanisms to facilitate and realize adaptation to climate change, particularly in developing countries. MCII strives to see an insurance mechanism in the Copenhagen Agreed Outcome. Additionally MCII promotes the greater use of insurance mechanisms to help developing countries manage weather-related extreme events.
