The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) has been promoting the alignment of Insurance Core Principles (ICPs) with efforts to promote inclusiveness of insurance markets. The need for proportionality in regulation processes, improved access to insurance services, and consumer protection is pressing upon insurance regulators and supervisors. These challenges are addressed by the Application Paper on Regulation and Supervision Supporting Inclusive Insurance Markets. The IAIS has been working on its "access agenda" through the IAIS - Microinsurance Network Joint Working Group and the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii).
The insurance supervisor plays a pivotal role in this "access agenda" as they possess the skills and expertise to lead initiatives and foster multi-sectoral cooperation. To contribute to the achievement of this agenda, the A2ii, the Toronto Centre, and Conférence Interafricaine des Marchés d'Assurances (CIMA) are pleased to announce a Microinsurance Training Program for Insurance Supervisors in Sub-Sahara Africa.
This training will draw from the Application Paper and shall employ interactive tools and methodologies to build the capacities of insurance supervisors on such themes as financial inclusion, innovations in products and distribution, and the challenges that beset the expansion of access to inclusive insurance.
Supervisors shall also benefit from the case studies to be presented and from the planning exercises.
