Launched in 2013, the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance is a multi-sector partnership focusing on finding practical ways to help communities strengthen their resilience to floods and save lives. In the first phase of the program, the Alliance reached over 225,000 direct beneficiaries across its 13 programs in nine countries.
In the second five-year phase of the program, launched in July 2018, Alliance members are aiming to increase the investment going into pre-event resilience building by USD 1 billion. The Alliance plans on doing this by rolling out best-practice community programs that demonstrate the value of resilience building; compiling best practices and success stories; and advocating for more investment in resilience with authorities and public and private funders.
Members of the Alliance are:
- Practical Action
- Zurich Insurance
- Concern Worldwide
- Mercy Corps
- Plan International
- International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis
- ISET International
- London School of Economics and Political Science
- International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
