Inclusive Insurance and the Sustainable Development Goals: How insurance contributes to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

In September of 2015, the United Nations adopted a new framework for development, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, replacing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This paper provides an overview of the contribution of insurance to specific SDGs and their targets, using all 17 SDGs as the basis of the assessment. These were examined to identify which goals could significantly benefit from insurance as a risk protection mechanism to support their achievement.

Quote of the Day

"I was stranded in New York City during the 2003 blackout, and for the next two years, I carried a small flashlight in my backpack. The flashlight did not cost much, but its potential to help in another blackout was obvious and to use it I needed only to press a button. For microinsurance to be accepted on a massive scale, it cannot cost much, its value must be obvious, and it must be simple to use." -- Brandon Matthews | Head of Microinsurance, Zurich Financial Services
