Press Releases

London, UK, 27th February, 2023: We are delighted to announce that The Insurance Development Forum’s (IDF) Annual Report is available now. The IDF is a public-private partnership led by the insurance industry and supported by international organisations, and 2022 In Review  A Year of Influence and Implementation outlines how we continued to consolidate and deliver on the operational priorities of the IDF Working Groups for the public good, and deliver strengthened operational governance. 

Our focuses are on the three pillars of implementation, engagement and advocacy accelerated in 2022, and we plan further progress in 2023.

Our mandate as an institution is driven by the fundamental understanding that insurance is not simply a commodity that is bought on price but is a service solution that is bought based on perceived value to reduce risk and manage loss.

This offers with it an incredibly powerful alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the fundamental opportunity to help drive resilience at a time of great uncertainty.

In 2022, we focused on creating an active and inclusive ecosystem for public private collaboration. We expanded our industry membership, diversified donor engagement, and deepened individual company awareness of the IDF and member involvement.

Importantly, we also consolidated and delivered on the operational priorities of our Working Groups and strengthened our operational governance.

2022 was also a year of influence, and as an institution we offered our full support to a number of global ground breaking initiatives such as the Global Shield against climate risks amongst others.

Over the coming pages we hope that you will gain insights into the very practical initiatives being led by the IDF members across 22 countries and through the 29 projects which reflect our global reach, local presence and ultimately our commitment to impact.

Our aim is to build on these pioneering projects and engage the public and private sector in a broader dialogue on how to scale impact and add value through collaboration.

We hope that these initiatives will inspire more companies and institutions to get involved.
