How insurance contributes to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
In 2015, the UN adopted a far-reaching resolution intended to transform the world. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals seeks to complete what the Millennium Development Goals did not achieve, particularly in reaching the most vulnerable. Inclusive insurance, as a risk protection mechanism, can arguably support many of the SDGs. Being an integral part of financial systems development, inclusive insurance is a cross-cutting approach, adopted to contribute to the goals of other development agendas, such as food security, agricultural, rural and private sector development and gender mainstreaming.
