Apply now for ISF co-funding of product development costs.
In light of the ongoing pandemic, holistic approaches on disaster relief and preparedness are more vital than ever. Therefore, the ISF especially welcomes concepts for insurance products for target groups highly affected by the pandemic, e.g.
- governments and communities
- poor and vulnerable households
in order to prove additional funding for measures such as
- emergency relief
- business interruption
- food security
- public buildings and critical infrastructure
mitigating the effects of compounded risks due to climate change such as flood, wind/storm, excess rain, drought/heat waves, cold spells (in combination with other perils).
All documents relevant for the application process and further guiding documents are published here.
The 6th Call for Proposals is planned to start in late Q3/early Q4 2021.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email@example.com.

- representing the demand and needs of end-beneficiaries (e.g. national or regional government bodies, NGOs, local insurers)

3) which provide an own contribution
- matching the grant funding (in-kind and/or as financial contribution, including funds from their own resources and co-financing2)
Further parties, e.g. other product implementing partners such as risk modelling agencies, insurers, brokers, can additionally be involved.
