The Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) is a global partnership founded in 2009 with the mission to inspire and support insurance supervisors to promote inclusive and responsible insurance, thereby reducing vulnerability. The Initiative was created as a global partnership, initiate by the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung, BMZ), CGAP, FinMark Trust, the International Labour Office (ILO) and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF). Under this partnership, BMZ commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft für international Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to host the Secretariat of the Access to Insurance Initiative, funded by BMZ, the Dutch Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) and the IAIS.

To further its mission, A2ii’s core focus is the development of knowledge and technical capacity building to support insurance supervisors around the world. The goal of A2ii’s capacity building framework is to support insurance supervisors on their journey from acquiring knowledge and necessary skills towards the implementation of inclusive and proportionate regulatory frameworks and encourage inclusive insurance market development. This concept is observed across the thematic learning paths, representing A2ii’s key areas of expertise. These learnings paths currently include: (1) Inclusive insurance and proportionate regulation, (2) Climate, (3) Digital and (4) Gender.

The contractor selected will serve as the A2ii’s regional coordinator in Sub-Sahara Africa. As such, s/he will be responsible for liaising with insurance supervisors, partners and donors in the region, as well as for developing and implementing a capacity building strategy, represent the A2ii in the region and contribute to A2ii’s strategic development.

To this end, the services tendered under this contract shall contribute to the following of A2ii’s core activities:

Knowledge Generation:

The A2ii produces publications, research and case studies on an ongoing basis to inform supervisors on technical topics and developments in inclusive insurance regulation and supervision.

Through its interactive inclusive insurance regulation map, A2ii keeps track of developments in inclusive insurance regulatory frameworks across the world. This map is constantly updated with most recent developments, which are also regularly shared as blogs and newsflashes through A2ii communication channels.

As a member of the IAIS, A2ii actively contributes to various IAIS working groups, forums and committees to bring in the perspective of inclusive insurance and bring in the long-standing experience of working with insurance supervisors in Emerging and Developing Economies.

Events and training:

A2ii, in collaboration with partners like the Toronto Center or the International Actuarial Association, develops and implements training for insurance supervisors, both self-paced through the e-learning and exchange platform Connect.A2ii, as well as cohort-based training programs with live sessions, both virtually and in person.

A2ii regularly (co-)organises and actively contributes and participates in thematic events on various topics for insurance supervisors and insurance industry representatives. 

A2ii regularly participates in thematic working groups of partner organizations, in particular insurance supervisory meetings (at regional and global level) to provide input on relevant topics related to inclusive insurance regulation and supervision and proportionate regulation.
