    Social Enterprise World Forum

    The Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) is the leading forum for international exchange and collaboration in social entrepreneurship and social investment. The success of the event in galvanising the global movement of social enterprise has created a platform for learning, sharing of good practice, ideas and creating partnerships has made it the main forum for the social enterprise sector. The annual event was first held in Edinburgh in 2008 and has since been held on six continents. This is a historic occasion as it is the first time the SEWF will be held in an emerging market economy.

    The British Council is hosting the Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) 2019 in Addis Ababa on 23 – 25 October 2019. As the forum enters its second decade, hosting it in Ethiopia provides a unique opportunity to create a truly global social enterprise movement that can share experience, build networks and deliver solutions for a more inclusive and sustainable future for all.

    The forum will be complemented with a concurrently held youth week, policy forum, academic symposium, study tours as well as networking evening cultural receptions.

    The SEWF will promote sustainable economic growth for human development and offers a great opportunity to establish new relationships and create synergies for working together to increase the visibility of social enterprise on the global stage. It will also create a platform for on-going collaboration and sharing by connecting people across Africa and the world, between advanced and developing economies.

    We offer delegates a rich, authentic Ethiopian cultural experience throughout the forum, at side events and study tours, including to world renowned cultural heritage sites. The event is expected to attract up to 1,200 social enterprise leaders, policy makers, development partners, private sector representatives, academics, practitioners and supporters from all around the world.

    15th Inclusive Insurance for Emerging Markets

    The inclusive insurance sector has experienced persistent growth in client outreach and premium volumes over the past ten years. Today, nearly 300 million low-income citizens in developing countries are covered by an insurance policy. New technologies are boosting market coverage. In Asia alone, the number of people insured through mobile phones exceeds 40 million. Furthermore, the G7 has decided to insure 400 million people against climate risks by 2020. Nonetheless, many people are still without cover or alternative risk management options. With the global middle class expected to grow to nearly five billion within two decades, we are looking at billions of people who are without a formal safety net from insurance and hence at risk of falling (back) into poverty.

    The need to respond to this situation by understanding the role of insurance for sustainable development and the management of climate risks, improving supply, heightening the awareness of insurance, creating the right regulatory framework and better understanding the particular needs of the low-income population is the main focus of the conference. Representatives from insurance and reinsurance companies, distribution channels, investment funds, international organizations, NGOs and development-aid agencies, as well as academics, policymakers and supervisory regulators, from around 50 countries will attend the conference. Attendees will exchange views on current growth trends and risks in emerging markets and discuss key factors for successful implementation and maximized business opportunities to bring supply and demand to the next level.

    Structure and Objectives:

    The conference will feature panel discussions on key topics addressing an interdisciplinary audience. Additional working group sessions will deal in depth with subtopics. Interactive sessions hosted by partner organizations of the event will be a key part of the conference, facilitating dialogue in small groups on emerging issues. Keynote speeches will look at the latest international, national and local insights.

    Registration begins on 6 August 2019.
