Aiding the disaster recovery process: The effectiveness of microinsurance service providers' response to Typhoon Haiyan.

File: 

Description: 

The Microinsurance Network collaborated with GIZ RFPI to produce this report looking at how microinsurance service providers responded and performed in terms of claims processing and benefits payments in the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, and how that impacted the clients of these service providers.


As the Philippines has the highest insurance penetration in Asia and Oceania, with 19.9 million properties and lives covered,  it is a success story for microinsurance and the disaster caused by Typhoon Haiyan provided an opportunity to understand how microinsurance and providers perform following a natural disaster.
