SSA Inclusive Insurance Training Programme: focus on climate change and technology
The Programme will be held in English over seven days from from 4 to 12 October 2021. A mandatory on-boarding will be held on 27 September from 13:00-14:30 CEST/CAT. The Programme is offered free of charge to insurance supervisors, and is a combination of self-paced learning modules and live virtual sessions. The live sessions will take place from 9:00-12:00 CET/CAT every day, except until 13:00 CET/CAT on the last day, 12 October.
The Programme is limited to insurance supervisors only. The registration deadline is 12 September.
In partnership with the IAIS and the Toronto Centre, the A2ii has developed a curriculum on insurance regulation for supervisors based on the IAIS application paper ‘Regulation and Supervision Supporting Inclusive Insurance Markets.’ The Inclusive Insurance Training Programme allows participants to build on their existing supervisory skills, enhance their knowledge and develop the leadership skills needed to make positive change. The training blends theory and practice and uses a combination of presentations, highly interactive case studies and group exercises to strengthen insurance supervisors’ capacities to support inclusive insurance market development.
Upon completion of the seven-day Programme participants will be better equipped to understand:
The importance of promoting financial inclusion
How to apply robust supervisory principles and effective monitoring tools to foster the development of an insurance market
How to promote financial inclusion by encouraging supervisors to adopt proportionality to advance financial innovation, while maintaining stability, market integrity and conduct
The impact of current economic circumstances and emerging risks and their effects on insurers, economies, and consumers
How these risks impact developing economies, insurance markets and the role supervisors can play to mitigate these risks
The effects of climate-related risks on insurers, economies, and consumers and how supervisors can respond by enhancing their supervisory risk assessments and response capabilities
The importance of innovation and new technologies in the development of new insurance products and alternative distribution channels
How supervisors can enable the inclusion of typically marginalized segments of the population
Throughout the training and with the guidance from Programme Leaders, participants will put into practice the Toronto Centre’s Action Planning Methodology for dealing with the challenges faced at the workplace as well as stakeholder management and communication concepts. During the training participants will also develop their own action plans relating to country-specific issues. Following the Programme, Toronto Centre and A2ii will follow up with countries to provide additional guidance and support for their action plan implementation efforts.
This training is aimed at middle-to-senior level supervisors involved in the regulation and supervision of inclusive insurance in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
As this is a virtual training, for supervisors wishing to participate from other regions, please register your interest and we will contact you depending on available spaces.
