Insurance for Development

Monday, November 1, 2021 to Friday, December 3, 2021

Introduction to the course

A majority of insurers and distributors in traditionally underserved markets still struggle to offer insurance products that are viable for them and valuable for consumers. Capacity gaps among insurers’ staff are one of the factors inhibiting this progress. The Impact Insurance Facility of the ILO seeks to develop a sustainable flow of high-quality capacity building programmes to insurers, distributors and other market players, as part of its mission to develop inclusive insurance markets. Among these initiatives, an online course “Insurance for Development” is offered in an attempt to bridge the capacity gaps of insurance professionals on business models and strategies of how to provide insurance solutions to the underserved markets.

Who attends this course?

The course targets mid-to-senior-level insurance practitioners exploring and setting up inclusive insurance programmes in their organizations. Regulatory and supervisory authorities willing to support inclusive and responsible insurance in their countries are also invited to attend. The course is also designed for financial institutions and other distributors interested in inclusive insurance. Finally, it is useful for development practitioners, funding agencies and technical assistance providers supporting projects in this field.
