BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

COP 27-World Bank will host facility for climate disaster risk


(Reuters) — The World Bank will host a new facility that will help countries that sustain heavy economic loss due to climate change-driven disasters, its president David Malpass said Tuesday.

Mr. Malpass announced the new instrument, called the Global Shield Financing Facility, at a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who has spearheaded the effort among G7 members to create a program to give vulnerable countries access to disaster risk finance and insurance.

Mr. Scholz announced at the UN Climate Change Conference in Egypt on Monday that it will offer €170 million for the Global Shield program.
