MENUMENU

Insurance for development


Governments and donors are increasingly recognising the potential of insurance and improved risk management to contribute to broader policy and development objectives. They do this, for example, through the de-risking of value chains to improve productivity, using data to predict and manage risks, supporting enterprises through improved risk management and supporting the development of capital markets to contribute to growth.

Our research explores the potential opportunities to contribute to these policy and development objectives through better risk management and insurance.
