Technical Advisory Group

The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) has the mandate to provide independent advisory support to the In-Country Process, to the Coordination Hub and to the Global Shield Board. It brings together relevant technical and implementation experts across the broader climate and disaster risk management, adaptation and Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance (CDRFI) value chains. The TAG assembles expertise on CDRFI, Social Protection, Macroeconomics, Gender, Financial Inclusion, Resilience, Adaptation and Anticipatory Action.

It can be called upon and is available for:

  • Advisory to countries during the In-Country Process. This includes a technical review of the Request for CDRFI Support, providing recommendations on how to enhance the request based on countries’ priorities.
  • On-demand advisory to the Coordination Hub and to donors of the Financing Structure.
  • Support in the preparation of technical drafts to inform strategic decisions of the Global Shield Board.
