    Abstract

    "Vulnerable Countries and People. How Disaster Risk Reduction & Insurance Can Help Manage the Risks of Climate Change" focuses on linking disaster risk reduction and insurance approaches. A central concern is how to make such measures accessible and affordable to vulnerable people in developing countries. This Policy Brief helps delegates and policy-makers understand more clearly the links between climate risk insurance and "real people" by sharing interviews with people around the world affected by weather-related natural hazards. They give their own suggestions and tell their experiences regarding what should be done and which measures were really helpful.
