Munich Re Foundation is a non-profit organisation, founded by Munich Re in 2005. We are convinced that knowledge obliges. This 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 potential for sustainable development in a changing global environment. As critical thought leaders and reliable partners, we aim to find long-term solutions. Our goal is to improve living conditions. We are active in the fields of disaster prevention, poverty reduction, water as a risk and resource, and education in the context of climate change.
