    The 2030 Agenda finds its footing on four pillars. These form an interdependent framework which guides global and national development schemes in collaborative partnerships.
    Florian Gruson, Head of Public-Private Partnership Solutions, shares his views on the urgency for cooperation and the role of the insurance industry to best plan resilience and enhance communities' preparedness in the face of critical events.

    So as to boost the resilience of governments and hence of communities to climate risks, Willis Towers Watson and Munich Re successfully collaborated. The latter provided the risk capacity to support a parametric catastrophe wrapper around Belize’s debt for marine conservation.
    Insuring healthcare providers, at the frontline of the local fight against pandemics, enables them to sustainably offer quality care across demographics. Parametric triggers, indemnity settlement as well as a business continuity plan contribute to the improvement of the overall resilience against pandemics and epidemics. 
    By empowering and partnering with key economic, digital players, Munich Re co-develops and offers embedded financial solutions for Asia’s emerging micro-, small- and medium enterprises (MSME). The protection gap for vulnerable populations and businesses is hence reduced and payouts are ensured in a targeted and swift manner.
