Disaster Resilience Through Financial Inclusion

From access to finance and disaster assistance to the importance of savings, financial inclusion plays a vital role in building resilience to the impacts of disasters and the ability to recover quickly.

Exacerbated by climate change and social and economic conditions, disasters and climate-related events are leaving low-income communities increasingly vulnerable to financial shocks and economic distress.

This special report examines the roles of financial regulators in disaster risk reduction from a financial inclusion perspective and highlights examples of good practices in the AFI network.

The Inclusive Green Finance workstream is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI), supported by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), based on a decision by the German Bundestag.
