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 ZFRA was created by Zurich Insurance, with funding from the Zurich Z 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.
- Engaging with other initiatives, including the Risk Informed Early Action Partnership and the Resilience & Adaptation workstream of the UN Climate Action Summit.
