Resilience, Sustainability and Cities: How city managers can engage with the insurance industry effectively? (Session H2)

Integrated Climate Risk Management (ICRM) is a holistic risk management framework proposed by GIZ, which links the measures needed ahead, during and after the occurrence of a climate-related natural disaster to optimize the use of resources and significantly reduce the potential losses. City managers are invited to rethink their approach to risk management, considering the opportunities offered by the insurance industry for upscaling urban resilience and sustainability.

The workshop aims at turning the knowledge from city managers and insurance practitioners into a roadmap for developing and implementing ICRM frameworks in cities, and incorporate the principles of the Insurance Industry Development Goals for Cities to foster sustainability and inclusion.
