Impact Insurance Academy

The ILO's Impact Insurance Academy is a unique opportunity to learn from more than fifteen years of experience and innovations in inclusive insurance facilitated by the ILO's Impact Insurance Facility. By combining plenary sessions with specific electives by the choice of participants, participative activities, case studies and intensive discussions, the Academy offers a dynamic learning environment for participants and experts from all over the world to discuss ways of developing inclusive insurance. 

Uninsured risk has devastating consequences for future generations and constrains their entrepreneurial capacities. In many developing countries, however, the insurance industry is not yet fulfilling its potential. The ILO's Impact Insurance Facility works to enable the insurance sector, governments and their partners to embrace impact insurance as a way of reducing households' vulnerability, promoting stronger enterprises and facilitating better public policies. 

Who attends this course?

The Impact Insurance Academy targets mid-to-senior-level insurance practitioners exploring and setting up inclusive insurance programs in their organizations. Regulatory and supervisory authorities willing to support inclusive and responsible insurance in their countries are also invited to attend. The Academy 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.
