    Why:
    The adverse effects of climate change are unevenly distributed across the world. The poorest people bear a disproportionate burden of climate stress, yet they have contributed least to the drivers of climate change. The latest policy report from MCII “Making climate risk insurance work for the most vulnerable: Seven guiding principles” illustrates how insurance can best assist the poor and vulnerable. The report also has concrete recommendations for developing climate risk insurance schemes for the poor and vulnerable.
