GIZ Synergies in Climate & Disaster Risk Insurance in Asia & the Pacific (GIZ SCAP)


GIZ SCAP is a webinar series which facilitates the exchange of knowledge and learnings on CRI and related thematic areas within GIZ which could lead to potential collaboration among the projects for the development of appropriate solutions. It aims to do this by:

1. Presenting various Disaster Risk and Climate Risk management and transfer projects of GIZ in 1 hour webinars
2. Brainstorm/exchange on potential cross cutting activities that can contribute to the common objectives

GIZ SCAP was created to in order support a provision in the approved offer of the RPFI Asia III program that strongly recommends establishing linkages with various GIZ and international projects which operate the areas of CRI, DRRM, climate change adaptation, and other related topics. The list of GIZ projects and programs regularly invited to the GIZ SCAP can be found in the attached excel sheet. It also has an IDA community page . It started out as “GIZ Programs Synergies on CDRI” in 2019 and was re-launched using the present title."

GIZ SCAP No. 7

Monitoring and Evaluating CRI Solutions and Interventions

26 June 2020

Highlights

Presentations and discussions centered on the following:

  • Explain about how IGP has monitored CRI progress vis-à-vis their targets/indicators by presenting their current existing accounting computations and other data they need to capture from global, regional and national programs on CRI.
  • Describe how their framework could be used/adapted by GIZ CRI programs to develop their own national level M&E systems/framework which is aligned to IGP.

For RFPI, alignment to IGP could ensure an M&E tool would be available and be used even after its completion in the countries it operates in. This could contribute to the sustainability of CDRI efforts.
