In 2019, three dialogue forums were jointly organised in Latin America, Africa, and Asia by the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii), the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), Microinsurance Network (MiN) and InsuResilience Global Partnership, supported by local partners.
The consultative forums treated the challenge that climate change is increasing the already-massive impact natural disasters have on
the poor and vulnerable. Insurance as part of an integrated risk management package can play a
vital role in building greater resilience and protecting individuals and communities; however, efforts
are currently falling short, and a significant insurance protection gap remains.
This event report provides a summary of the three consultative forums.
