Inclusive Insurance Innovation Lab

International Dialogue of the Inclusive Insurance Innovation Lab

28 Feb – 2 March 2018, Akosombo, Ghana

For the first time, members from all four participating countries of the Inclusive Insurance Innovation Lab (Albania, Ghana, Kenya and Mongolia) will meet together during a 3-day international dialogue.

The workshop offers a space for mapping and peer exchange on challenges, successes and systemic issues of the inclusive insurance sectors in the participating countries.

Through field visits, dialogues with experts and opportunities for peer learning and joint reflection, participants will gain knowledge from the experiences of different perspectives, sectors and jurisdictions. The International Dialogue will also enable participants to build robust relationships with each other with the intention of working together as an international team over the next year and beyond the duration of the lab.
