The need for humanitarian assistance is increasing to a new order of magnitude, driven by the interlinked challenges of climate, conflict, inequality and the continued impacts of the pandemic. Disasters disproportionately impact the poorest and most at-risk people, thus worsening inequality.

If you are attending COP-28, we invite you to join Oxfam, a global confederation of twenty-one (21) sister organizations that fight inequality to end poverty and injustice, and Visa Inc, a financial technology global leader, for our event: “Building Resilient, Adaptive and Disaster Ready Communities: Innovations in digital financial inclusion to address humanitarian and climate crises.”


The event will highlight how Oxfam and Visa are partnering to scale-up B-READY (Building Resilient, Adaptive and Disaster Ready Communities): an innovation uniting meteorological forecasting with community inputs and digital financial inclusion to provide humanitarian assistance to more than 1 million individuals and microenterprises in the crucial window before a disaster strikes.

The event seeks to bring different actors across the climate, development, private and humanitarian sectors, with a focus on voices from affected communities, to explore ways to evolve the global financial architecture to save lives, build resiliency, and drastically decrease the impact of emergencies on homes, businesses, livelihoods, and governments.
