The African microinsurance landscape has changed dramatically over the last couple of years. In this Expert Forum (online event) we will discuss the results of our latest study the Landscape of Microinsurance in Africa 2018: focus on selected countries (launching November 7) and take a deeper look at what needs to happen to facilitate the routine collection of pertinent (micro)insurance data and how such data can help foster the provision of effective insurance for low income people across the globe.

Join our panel of experts on Thursday, November 14 from 2:30 to 3:30pm CET to tackle these questions and more on the challenges and benefits of data collection for closing the protection gap.
