Insurance has a critical role to play in helping vulnerable people around the world manage their risks. As a financial shock absorber and an enabler of economic activity, insurance is most effective when complemented by risk-reducing strategies and measures that help prevent losses in order to make insurance solutions more accessible, affordable and sustainable. This was agreed by microinsurance experts from across the globe at the annual member meeting of the Microinsurance Network last in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
