Developing Climate Risk Management Approaches for SMEs in Morocco
The industrial zone in Aït Melloul was selected as a pilot zone due to its historical exposure to flash floods which have caused significant financial losses. It lies in the Souss Massa region, 20km from the port of Agadir.

Overall, 25,000 employees depend directly or indirectly on business in this industrial zone. The
Developing Disaster Risk Management Approaches for Climate Risks in Ghana
The Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) suffers from rainrelated floods almost every year. This development is likely the result of several factors, including a rapid expansion of sealed-off surface, unplanned urbanization, weak infrastructure, inefficient waste collection and disposal system, as well as a changing climate with more intense rainfall events compared with earlier decades. GAMA is the economic hub of Ghana and is made of 29 metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies with an estimated 5.1 million inhabitants – making it the seventh-largest metropolitan area in Africa1

Public-Private Partnership - Italy
Sustainable insurance solutions for climate risk requires a joint effort of both the public and the private sector: the partners need to cooperate and commit to facilitating a development process.

Government support that goes beyond creating an enabling regulatory environment can be critical to the sustainability of such systems.
Partnerships Between Public and Private Sector - Canada
Partners for Action (P4A) research identified three conditions for flood insurance success in Canada: that Canadians are aware of their risk; that decision makers consider flood risk in planning and policy decisions; and that mechanisms exist for risk transfer following personal risk reduction. These conditions have been supported by all levels of government (federal, provincial, municipal, and indigenous), business, and the non-governmental sector, particularly support towards raising awareness amongst homeowners.
