Uninsured risk has devastating consequences for future generations and constrains their entrepreneurial capacities. In many developing countries, however, the insurance industry is not yet fulfilling its potential. The ILO's Impact Insurance Facility works to enable the insurance sector, governments and their partners to embrace impact insurance as a way of reducing households' vulnerability, promoting stronger enterprises and facilitating better public policies. As part of its efforts to empower the insurance industry, governments and their partners to realize the full potential of insurance, the ILO's Impact Insurance Facility and the ITCILO are together running an Impact Insurance Academy. The Academy is a unique opportunity to learn from the ten years of experience and innovation in inclusive insurance facilitated by the ILO's Impact Insurance Facility. Combining plenary sessions with electives chosen by the participants, participative activities, case studies and intensive discussions, the Academy offers a dynamic learning environment in which participants and experts from all over the world can discuss ways of developing inclusive insurance.
