Knowledge obliges. That is why we put knowledge about poverty, environmental and climate risks at the service of people. We identify risks, counteract them and help to manage them. We tap potentials for sustainable development in global change. As critical thinkers and reliable partners, we aim to find long-term solutions. Our goal is to improve living conditions. We are active in the areas of disaster risk reduction, poverty reduction, water as a risk and resource, and education in the context of climate change. The Munich Re Foundation is a non-profit foundation established by Munich Re. Since 2005, we have been working under our guiding principle: From knowledge to action. We cooperate with partners from the UN environment, with NGOs, with insurance associations and many more.
