15th Microinsurance Conference

1 November, 2019    

How can insurance contribute to broader policy and development objectives? How can data be used to predict and manage risks, support enterprises and cope with climate change?

These are some of the questions that will be discussed at the 15th International Microinsurance Conference in Dhaka, Bangladesh from 5 to 7 November 2019.

As part of our ongoing work on the role of insurance in sustainable development and inclusive growth, we will be attending the 15th IMC, organised by the Munich Re Foundation, the Microinsurance Network and the Bangladesh Insurance Association (BIA). This year’s conference is focused on inclusive insurance and the role of insurance in coping with climate risk; the reality of which is increasingly disrupting people’s lives and threatening to derail development progress. Given the changing landscape, inclusive insurance can play a crucial role in improving household, business and institutional/government resilience to climate and disaster-related shocks – not just through risk transfer but also through proactive risk management. Connect with Nichola Beyers, Jeremy Gray and Doubell Chamberlain, who will be participating in the following sessions:

  • Doubell will be participating in the National Opening Ceremony in his capacity as Chairman of the Microinsurance Network Board.
  • Doubell will also be facilitating “How can insurance build society’s capacity to develop?”; hosted by InsuResilience, Cenfri and the Microinsurance Network.
  • Jeremy will be participating in Parallel session 2 “Developing insurance markets for SMEs”; hosted by GIZ.
