Reinforce our partnerships to fight climate changeOver the past few months, we’ve put in place new projects and partnerships that will strengthen our work on climate change and risk mitigation.
AXA agreed a new, two-year partnership with UN Habitat, focusing on disaster risk reduction. The partnership aims to strengthen building codes and their implementation in countries vulnerable to natural disasters, to improve minimum standards and to encourage countries to ‘build back better’, and to reduce fatalities and limit economic losses as a result of disasters. The partnership also supports AXA’s work on resilience and on the overall objectives of the Sendai Framework.
AXA’s partnership with CARE is in place since 2011. Over the past five years, it has helped populations to better prepare for climate-related risks. Climate Change Adaptation projects, based on the international research program "Where the Rain Falls" were implemented in India and Thailand; Disaster Risk Reduction projects already lead in Benin, Indonesia and Vietnam, but also south and central America.
Moreover, AXA has been supporting CARE to provide emergency responses to populations faced by large natural disasters by raising funds and making its expertise available when and where relevant.
