The International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) and the Network are co-organising the 11th Consultative Forum on “ Scaling up insurance as a disaster resilience strategy for smallholder farmers in Latin America”, hosted by the Munich Re Foundation and APESEG as part of the 13th International Microinsurance Conference (IMC). The event will be held in Lima, Peru on the afternoon of Monday, 6 November.

This Forum will discuss issues related to scaling up agricultural insurance including developing proportionate regulatory frameworks to support the insurance business on one hand, and to protect the consumer rights of smallholder farmers on the other. It will explore how various stakeholders – insurance supervisors, the industry, policymakers, researchers and donors – can cooperate and align their respective roles to achieve sustainability and scale while ensuring fair treatment of this vulnerable segment of the population. 

It is expected that approximately 60 high-ranking representatives from insurance supervisory authorities, the industry and the public sector will attend the event, which will be the third of a three-part series, building on insights from the 9th Consultative Forum, held in Singapore and the 10th CF, held in Uganda.

The objective of the Forum is to stimulate dialogue between policymakers, supervisors, the industry and other stakeholders that is critical to fostering knowledge and sound policymaking in the field of inclusive insurance.
