In 2021, the Anticipation Hub, InsuResilience Global Partnership (IGP) and Risk-Informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) (the IGP Sectoral Community (SC)) teamed up to launch the “Sectoral Community on Linking Anticipatory Action to Risk Financing”. The objective of the Sectoral Community (SC) is to bring together the development & humanitarian sector, public & private actors, civil society actors, researchers and think tanks to exchange experiences and share ideas on how various Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance (CDRFI) tools and anticipatory action can be better integrated. The SC then decided to draft ‘think pieces’ – succinct, policy-relevant opinion pieces in which SC members could advocate for a particular position or objectively describe the issue/challenges and possible opportunities, options and solutions at hand. SC members developed a set of 10 questions, and they were then invited to address those questions based on their experience, technical expertise and further research. The think pieces are not necessarily providing the views of the organisations of the respective authors but their personal perspective.
