Summary of the 15th, 16th, and 17th Consultative Forums in 2019 - “Climate and disaster risk: building resilience, bridging the protection gap”

In 2019, three dialogue forums were jointly organised in Latin America, Africa, and Asia by the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii), the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), Microinsurance Network (MiN) and InsuResilience Global Partnership, supported by local partners.

The challenge: climate change is increasing the already-massive impact natural disasters have on
the poor and vulnerable. Insurance as part of an integrated risk management package can play a
vital role in building greater resilience and protecting individuals and communities; however, efforts
are currently falling short, and a significant insurance protection gap remains.

 

A summary of the three consultative forums is now published here:
