The ILO’s Impact Insurance Facility's Annual Report 2016 highlights their achievements over the past year. In 2016, the Facility started eleven innovation projects in sub-Saharan Africa – projects that are pushing the frontier by testing new ways for insurance to live up to its development potential. These projects are supported by a batch of Impact Insurance Fellows who are responsible for assisting their host companies in project implementation and documenting the emerging lessons and experiences. In 2016, the Facility also stepped up its sustainable capacity building activities. Through these efforts, they reached more than 250,000 beneficiaries, shared cutting-edge solutions with 56,000 stakeholders and encouraged business practice improvements in 43 organisations.
