Microinsurance: an innovative tool for risk and disaster mangement

Source(s):  Global Risk Forum (GRF Davos)

This publication is a collection of contributions from presentations given at the International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos 2008 aimed at underlining the importance of strong links between the risk management community and the public and private sectors. The scope of this book is both to investigate the linkage between disaster risk reduction and microinsurance and to address possible combinations of loans, savings and insurance schemes for low-income people to provide them with appropriate solutions for at least partial risk reduction, and for faster recovery after a disaster. The contributions point out the importance of microinsurance in reducing the risk of impoverishment, and in improving risk prevention and disaster management.

It addresses cases from Africa, Asia and Latin America, including: Bolivia, Ethiopia, Kenya, India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Viet Nam.

The International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2008 was held in Davos, Switzerland 25-29 August, 2008.
