An Inventory of Micro-Insurance Schemes in Nepal
PDF File Size: 808 KB | Download   
This inventory gives an overview of existing and newly planned micro-insurance schemes in
Nepal, called the MIS Inventory. The inventory is part of a worldwide compendium to document ongoing experiences of micro-insurance schemes, which is being compiled by the ILO’s Strategies and Tools against Social Exclusion and Poverty Programme (STEP) simultaneously in Africa, Asia and Latin-America. In Asia, the inventories are being carried out in Nepal, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Other planned inventories in the region will cover the Philippines, Cambodia and Vietnam. The inventory in Nepal is a result of the ILO/STEP’s Programme in Nepal and its project entitled “Extending Social protection through health micro-insurance to women in the informal economy – SPHMI-Project”. The project is funded by the Norwegian Government. The ILO/STEP programme is setting up an Asia Micro-Insurance Network. The MIS inventory is part of this network and, therefore, the inventory in Nepal will be disseminated and shared with a wider audience of micro-insurance practitioners and promoters throughout the region. Other regional initiatives in mapping existing and newly planned MIS in countries such as India, the Philippines, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will form part of this network. Twenty-one organizations that have been operating micro-insurance schemes1 were surveyed in this study. Also, newly planned schemes are examined, further described in Part 4. As far as possible, this study tries to include all the organizations that are currently running micro-insurance scheme in Nepal. In order to include most of the organizations, all the organizations were inquired if they know of other organizations that are running micro-insurance scheme in Nepal. During the process of this study, it is come to know that some more organizations are planning to launch micro-insurance schemes in the near future, especially in health care.
