Looking for support to transform your concept into a climate risk insurance product?
Submit your Concept Note and apply for funding now! The submission deadline for the 4th Call for Proposals is 29/01/2021, 23:59 CET.

Please note, the 4th Call for Proposals has a geographical focus on countries in Asia and the Pacific, Africa and Latin America which are eligible to receive official development assistance (ODA) and are vulnerable to extreme weather events.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a holistic approach on disaster relief and preparedness seems more vital than ever in order to compensate (in-)direct effects on economic development and growth of ODA countries. Thus, 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.
