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.
