5th HLCG Meeting 2021 

The HLCG came together for their fifth meeting on the margins of COP26, on October 27th, kickstarting the discussion over the current state and future of the global climate and disaster risk finance and insurance (CDRFI) architecture. Through the many exchanges by the members, it became clear the need to adapt the setup on solutions and working together to be fit for purpose in light of accelerating climate change, marking this as the core topic for the upcoming year.

As what can be seen as one part of this global CDRFI architecture, the HLCG took up the topic of the SMART premium and capital support principles, by approving the principles and further discussing their implementation to enhance the affordability of insurance instruments.
