The Network's June Member Meeting (JMM) is the annual meeting for the members of the Network to gain insights into key areas of development in the sector, participate in discussions on topical issues in a relaxed and friendly professional environment, and connect and develop personal relationships with important players in the field.
This year the June Member Meeting will be taking place June 27 and 28.To mark the Network’s 15th anniversary, the JMM will, for the first time, take place in the beautiful Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.
The event will focus on “The role of inclusive insurance in risk reduction: Mapping the roles of the insurance industry, development partners and governments in risk management and risk reduction for the poor”.
We already have an exciting lineup of speakers including representatives from the World Food Programme, DHAN Foundation, and Zurich Foundation, to name but a few. Plenary sessions will include topics such as InsurTech innovations in risk prevention and insurance to help drive client engagement and behaviour change, innovative pre-event risk mitigation measures for flood resilience as well as the R4 Rural Resilience Initiative and its risk management approach for resilience against climate variability and shocks, and the provision of complementary risk reduction services through community organisations.
The intimate nature of the meeting allows for unique opportunities in networking and a candid exchange of knowledge and ideas, something that is often hard to come by at bigger events.
