Global Risk Modelling Alliance

A unique partnership opening up private and public risk expertise, helping to build empowered, resourceful, climate and disaster-resilient communities.

The information gap

A global shortage of climate and disaster risk information is damaging the confidence needed for investment and risk finance focusing on resilience, leaving vulnerable communities exposed.

Resource-limited ministries, cities and agencies lack access to key tools and knowledge and have to depend on somebody else’s view of their risk, often generated on the other side of the world. There is a better way to build trust that is so necessary for investment in adaptation and the protection of livelihoods.

It is time to redress this global imbalance, and pool the world’s risk expertise.

Our purpose

The GRMA brings access to climate and disaster risk insight where it is needed the most. Working side by side with officials and local experts in ministries and mayoral offices, it offers open risk management tools, data and access to operational risk finance expertise.
