The World Map of Microinsurance


Microinsurance has been making great progress in recent years. New markets are being explored, and new products and operational strategies are being introduced. A number of governments have started developing a regulatory framework to enable the development of innovative solutions. As more and more stakeholders see the potential that microinsurance holds for both business and development, the importance of a detailed and updated overview of the status quo of microinsurance activities increases.

In 2006, first results from the ground-breaking study "The Landscape of Microinsurance in the World's 100 Poorest Countries" were published followed by a series of landscape studies. The World Map of Microinsurance (WMM) hosts data and analysis from the landscape studies, which are displayed visually on an interactive world map. The map incorporates interactive data tools, such as customisable graphs and tables to compare data. The site also contains country and region profiles. The WMM is hosted by the Microinsurance Network.
