This guidance note aims to provide practical step-by-step guidance on how to translate international commitments relevant to improving the gender-responsiveness of Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance (CDRFI) solutions into action at the national and institutional level. These international commitments include the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement; the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (the Sendai Framework). The InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP) is aligned to these frameworks. This guidance provides advice on how to integrate gender and CDRFI considerations into the policy development process and policy content. It assesses the guidance that these policy frameworks offer for the CDRFI financing ‘sector,’ it also explores the challenges and opportunities in converting international, national, and institutional strategies into action. The target audience is policy makers, programme implementers and national level organisations that are involved in the design and implementation of policies related to CDRFI.
This guidance note is intended to be read in conjunction with the ‘Policy Report: The Nexus between International Gender and Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance Frameworks to support with National Action.’
