Microinsurance for Disaster Risk Reduction
Microinsurance for Disaster Risk Reduction (In Odia and English Langauge)
Insurance education can be thought of as a range of approaches. On one end, purely educational programmes teach risk management and insurance concepts to encourage communities to adopt proactive risk management strategies. On the other, commercial marketing schemes designed to sell insurance policies focus mainly on specific product details. The most effective education programmes provide participants with new information encourage changes in attitudes and behavior and then enable households to act on the changes.

The ability to act on information immediately makes participants more likely to retain knowledge and to sustain new behaviors. With this intention, project involved agencies, developed a module on 'Microinsurance for Disaster Risk Reduction' for DRR practitioners and humanitarian agencies working directly with communities to build their understanding on microinsurance and ultimately educational programmes on microinsurance can be conducted in vulnerable coastal areas. Knowledge product is as following key aspects of microinsurance:
1. Introduction to microinsurance and its relevance to risk reduction;
2. Assessing microinsurance demand;
3. Guideline for developing community-driven microinsurance products and
4. Case examples of successful microinsurance initiatives in India.
