Predict and protect: G7 solutions for a new approach to crisis risk financing

This solutions paper answers the question: what should the G7 do to better avert and respond to crises in order to reduce both human suffering and the overall cost of crisis response? The decision to include discussions on disaster risk as part the UK’s G7 presidency is extremely welcome. The time has come for a radical shift in how the world responds to crises (disasters that overwhelm one or more countries). We now face a situation where 1 in 33 people worldwide is predicted to need humanitarian assistance in 2021, up 40% on 2020. Climate change, population shifts, and conflict mean that our disaster risk is rising, not abating, and so the G7’s attention to this matter is of critical importance.
