MCII- Munich Climate Insurance Initiative
MCII is an innovation laboratory on climate change and insurance. MCII is recognized among governments and policy processes like UNFCCC, ISDR´s Hyogo Framework, and in humanitarian work on climate risk management. MCII is a node among practitioners and scholars for innovative uses of risk transfer tools to manage climate risks. MCII develops innovations in two ways: MCII pioneers concepts through its extensive expert network advocating for new ways of applying insurance to complement risk management and adaptation.
Secondly, MCII tests risk transfer tools in “lighthouse” projects and provides proof of concept and implementation models for further replication. MCII feeds its results back to governments and decision makers, affecting regulations and enhancing international aspiration and standards. MCII works closely with private sector insurers and insurance associations, governments and regulators, delegates to UN policy processes, UN agencies and regional bodies, and scholars & practitioners of risk management and adaptation.See more
