Preliminary survey results
The Microinsurance Network is co-financing two Working Group projects so far
Technology – Online Inventory of Technologies
This Working Group’s project is to provide the microinsurance community with an online inventory of technologies applicable to microinsurance, starting with software. The inventory should offer on the one hand software developers a platform for their product(s) and on the other hand, provide the microinsurance community with a place where they can find various software solutions for microinsurance.
Insurance Education – Stock Taking and Case Studies
The Working Group will engage in a “stock-taking” exercise of the available material regarding microinsurance education (if you have any papers, leaflets, or educational material regarding this subject please contact the working group’s facilitator Jim Roth). With this information they plan to identify gaps in the current offer of microinsurance education, and devise strategies to fill these. They will also prepare two sample case study series of best practice / lessons learned. The objective of this exercise is to make the “business case” for investing in insurance education and pave the way for a larger series of case studies.
