Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), in collaboration with The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) and APESEG, hosted a matchmaking workshop for attendees of the 13th Annual Microinsurance Conference in Lima, Peru.
The goal of the matchmaking event was to generate dialogue, and ultimately partnerships, between researchers and microinsurance providers to rigorously evaluate the business and social impacts of innovative, evidence-driven insurance products. The event introduced the state of the evidence on microinsurance and open questions for further research. Implementing organizations were grouped with researchers to discuss the key issues concerning microinsurance, including consumer demand, service quality, financial literacy, gender differences, and distribution channels. Attendees had an opportunity to briefly introduce their insurance model, and together the groups developed a theory of change for an innovation that addresses one of the key issues. IPA and J-PAL supported in facilitating these discussions and are following up on potential evaluations after the workshop.
