About this Event

This session will bring together academics, insurance experts and the wider climate community to share knowledge at the nexus between gender, climate and insurance.

The aim is to convene subject matter experts to highlight this critical intersection in order to drive action to insert gender into climate finance.

In particular, the discussion will focus on:

  • The academic side of gender and climate. What does it mean, why is it important. Illustrated by  examples
  • The practitioner’s point of view. What do insurance products that focus on gender actually look like and how can we take it from theory to practice. Illustrated by examples
  • An NGO experience – how theory and practice applies to on-the-ground experiences. Illustrated by a specific initiative

The event is aimed at academics, climate scientists and insurance experts.
