This partnership goes beyond a financial contribution. Funding comes through the Z Zurich Foundation, but Zurich Insurance Group is also a partner in the Alliance. As such, it provides expertise as a global insurer to develop programming that shifts the focus away from post-event recovery and rather stresses the importance of pre-event resilience-building.
This is in synergy with Concern’s approach to community resilience building of which disaster risk reduction is the foundation and a cornerstone of our approach to sustainable community-led solutions.
This programme has three objectives:
- To Increase funding for flood resilience
- To Improve policy at global, national and sub-national scales
- To Improve flood resilience practice at community level
