The ISF especially welcomes project concepts targeting the sectors most vulnerable to effects of the pandemic, such as critical infrastructure, emergency relief and financial support of (M)SMEs.
The fund seeks projects which want to develop new climate risk insurance products, especially for governments or scale-up already existing products, e.g. into other regions or to other groups, in order to increase the resilience of poor and vulnerable people in developing countries to climate change.
- Eligible countries include Countries in Asia and the Pacific, Africa and Latin America which are eligible to receive official development assistance (ODA) as defined by the OECD Development Assistance Committee and are vulnerable to extreme weather events. Further information is published here.
