Inclusive insurance

Vulnerable people around the world face various risks, including socio-economic, climate and health risks. Insurance and risk-finance is critical to reducing humanitarian impacts of disasters, building people’s capacity to recover more quickly and strengthening community resilience. Moreover, insurance plays an important role for a sustainable economic development and in the fight against poverty.

Billions of people are still left without appropriate risk management. The Munich Re Foundation aims at increasing the outreach of insurance solutions in emerging and developing countries. Facilitating the exchange of knowledge and best practices as well as understanding client needs, market opportunities and barriers contributes to the development of the inclusive insurance sector. We create platforms to connect important stakeholders from the private and public sector and civil society, fund knowledge and data generation and support education.
