Impacting the Sustainable Development Goals through mutual microinsurance

A 2019 report, Mutual microinsurance and the Sustainable Development Goals: an impact assessment following Typhoon Haiyan, by The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), explored how mutual microinsurance, enabled by adequate regulation, can contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by increasing the protection and resilience of low-income communities. The report documented for the first time how mutual microinsurance has the potential to contribute towards ten of the SDGs by building financially literate, insurable, resilient, and empowered communities.

This webinar starts with a presentation from Dr Ana Gonzalez-Pelaez, the principal investigator and author of the report, on how mutual microinsurance providers can impact the SDGs. It is then followed by presentations from practitioners of mutual microinsurance in India and Paraguay who share how their programmes are also directly impacting the SDGs.
