16th Consultative Forum on Inclusive Insurance

Jun 12, 2019 - Jun 13, 2019 | Johannesburg, South Africa

Climate and disaster risk: building resilience, bridging the protection gap

The 2019 Consultative Forum will explore how insurance providers, policymakers, insurance regulators and supervisors can collaborate to reduce the protection gap and help to build resilience in the face of climate risk and natural disasters. It provides a platform for dialogue between these stakeholders, as well as the opportunity to meet with and learn from colleagues and experts involved in climate change from Africa and other regions.

Key themes will include:

  • Why does the protection gap exist and why does it matter?
  • What barriers do actors from both the private and the public sectors need to overcome to build the resilience of vulnerable households and small businesses to climate change?
  • Which innovative approaches have been addressing vulnerability to climate change and building resilience to shocks at scale?
  • How can sovereign insurance and microinsurance reinforce and not undermine one another?
