In this panel discussion, experts will explore the incentives and obstacles to provision and uptake of risk finance in the developing
world. The panel with commercial, practitioner, donor, government and academic expertise will address the following questions:
- Should development agencies be contributing to insurance and risk finance initiatives in the developing world or should this be left to local governments and the commercial sector?
- How can the private sector, donors, local governments and local partners better work together to meet financial planning needs in the developing world?
- How do the incentives for and barriers to uptake of risk finance vary in different cultural contexts, and how can risk finance products be adapted to address this?
Panel Chair: Daniel Clarke, Government Actuary
