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.

Mercy Corps joined the Alliance in 2018, and currently implements flood resilience programmes in Indonesia, Jordan and Nepal.
