The Global Resilience Index Initiative (GRII) launched a Demonstrator at COP27. The launch of the Demonstrator aimed to provide the initial set of people, planet, and prosperity indices to guide financial decisions to scale up adaptation.
At COP27, the GRII also called on innovators and data providers worldwide to support the scaling and improvement of this initiative, as well as engagement from more pathfinder institutions and governments. The Initiative noted that the availability of scientific and reliable data is the foundation of building resilience and that climate risk indices must not only be made available but accessible as well to financial systems and economies.
Launched in COP26, GRII is a global public-private partnership to address the climate data emergency with consistent, accessible, and reliable risk information for use by governments, the financial sector, and wider communities. It draws upon significant cross-sector risk modelling experience, including public-private partnerships between governments, academia, insurance, and engineering. The GRII founding partners include:
Centre for Greening Finance and Investment (CGFI)
Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI)
Coalition for Climate Resilient Investment (CCRI)
Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Foundation
Insurance Development Forum (IDF)
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)
