The CEAR seeks to develop the topic of risk into a well-defined, inter-disciplinary area of study, research and policy. Risk is studied in many academic disciplines already. In some cases the tools are similar, but not always, and often the research questions and applications differ markedly across these fields. CEAR will leverage the development of a dialogue between researchers and policy makers in these areas in an effort to arbitrage differences in knowledge across these areas.

The ILO's Impact Insurance Facility works intensively with governments, insurers and other stakeholders to strengthen insurance markets and embed insurance in strategies to reduce the vulnerability of populations and boost the productivity of economies. Each of these three elements is essential. Only by delivering innovation and capacity on a far greater scale, and bringing together public and private players across the globe, are we making impact insurance a reality.

The World Bank Group has set two goals for the world to achieve by 2030: End extreme poverty by decreasing the percentage of people living on less than $1.90 a day to no more than 3% and promote shared prosperity by fostering the income growth of the bottom 40% for every country. The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. We are not a bank in the ordinary sense but a unique partnership to reduce poverty and support development. The World Bank Group comprises five institutions managed by their member countries. Established in 1944, the World Bank Group is headquartered in Washington, D.C. with more than 120 offices worldwide.
