There are just 12 years remaining to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and urgent action is needed if no-one is to be left behind. This report, and future editions, will focus on providing concrete examples of how inclusive insurance is contributing to the broad development agenda in a structured way that links directly to selected SDGs. It builds on work published by Microinsurance Network (MiN) members in the 2017 report Inclusive Insurance and the Sustainable Development Goals, and responds to the need to demonstrate how practice supports theory.
