The Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance

Mercy Corps is proud to be a member of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance, a partnership of nine organisations from both the public and private sectors with a shared vision: to prevent floods from devastating the lives of the world's most vulnerable people. The Alliance was created by Zurich Insurance, with funding from the Z Zurich Foundation.

We have set ambitious goals, and have made the following commitments:

  • Helping two million people become more resilient to flooding.
  • Advocating for the generation of an additional $1 billion from public and private sources in climate-smart, risk-informed development.
  • Elevating community voices to show why increased investment in flood resilience is urgently needed.
