About MAP

The Multi-Actor Partnership (MAP) on Climate and Disaster Risk Finance in the context of the InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP) is a global project implemented by a group of civil society organizations from Laos, Sri Lanka, Malawi, Madagascar, Senegal, Philippines, Caribbean, and Germany.

In addition to global level influencing work, the core of the MAP in the Philippines will be engagement at both the national and subnational level, capacity development and the establishment of MAP on climate risk finance. ICSC is the main implementer of MAP in the country.

This project is funded by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is coordinated by CARE Germany together with Germanwatch and the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII).
