Friday, September 9, 2016

Long-standing Network member Dante Portula of GIZ was at the forefront of microinsurance discussions during last month's APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) events held in China. The 2016 Asia Pacific Financial Forum (APFF) Progress Report outlines the achievements and way forward, as well as making recommendations in both the microinsurance and Disaster Risk Financing and Insurance (DRFI) work streams. These include a proposal for stakeholders in the APEC Finance Ministers' Process to carry out activities in 2017 to complete the roadmap for expansion of microinsurance coverage, as envisioned under the Cebu Action Plan (CAP), among others.
