The consequences of climate change and natural hazards primarily affect those regions where institutions are weak and resources are limited. To react efficiently, the local communities depend on the cooperation of global stakeholders. Allianz’ interest in sustainable solutions and proactive risk minimization lies in its nature as an insurer and is shared by Allianz entities worldwide.
With the support of Allianz, SOS Children’s Villages International developed the Emergency Preparedness Program. Introducing a new holistic approach to disaster management, the program combines latest satellite technology, user-friendly information and a network of trusted local stakeholders to minimize weather- and conflict-related risks for vulnerable SOS Children's Villages and the surrounding communities.
