In 2013, Zurich Insurance created a multi-sectoral Alliance with funding from the Z Zurich Foundation for five years, until 2018. During this first phase, the partners in the Alliance were: the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria, the Wharton Business School’s Risk Management and Decision Processes Centre (Wharton) in the U.S. and the international development non-governmental organization Practical Action.
In December 2017, the Z Zurich Foundation and Zurich Insurance agreed to provide long-term flexible funding, as well as in-kind support, for a second phase with a significantly enlarged Alliance for a further five years (until 2023) to replicate and scale up the work begun under phase 1.
