In the face of adverse risks, insurance is a tool that can build resilience, especially for the most vulnerable who are often excluded and lack effective risk management strategies when disaster hits. I believe that it is vital to address barriers to access and I would like to play a role in fostering greater inclusivity for those most in need.
