17th Consultative Forum on Climate and Disaster Risk for insurance supervisory authorities, insurance practitioners and policymakers “Climate and disaster risk: building resilience, bridging the protection gap in Asia”

Poor and vulnerable people in the developing world are affected most by natural disasters. They suffer disproportionately due to their higher vulnerability and exposure and lower ability to cope and recover. In 2019, our Consultative Forums 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.

The 17th Consultative Forum will provide 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 Asia and other regions.

Who should attend?

Senior representatives of insurance regulatory and supervisory authorities, supervisors from other relevant sectors, policymakers, insurers, brokers, climate change experts, aggregators, and international development partners.

What are the key themes?

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?

Who are the hosts?

The upcoming Forum is jointly organised by the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii), the Microinsurance Network (MiN), and the InsuResilience Global Partnership, and hosted by the Bangladesh Insurance Association (BIA) and Munich Re Foundation. It will take place alongside the 15th International Conference on Inclusive Insurance in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
