Inclusive Insurance and the Sustainable Development Goals

The MIC is proud to announce the release of Inclusive Insurance and the Sustainable Development Goals: How insurance contributes to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Co-authored by the MIC's Michael J. McCord and Katie Biese as well as by Solveig Wanczeck and Martina Wiedmaier-Pfister and published by GIZ, this monumental publication gives an overview of how insurance is a primary contributor to six Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a secondary contributor to five additional SDGs. Achieving the SDGs and their targets requires global engagement across a variety of public and private sectors, including insurance. A global effort among insurers, governments, the development community, and other key stakeholders to promote inclusive insurance is needed now.
