Register now for the UN PSI Africa summit

Registration has opened for the forthcoming fourth UN Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) Africa summit, to be held in Nairobi and online on 22 April.

Those wishing to participate in the day should click here to access the full registration. Speakers already confirmed as taking part in the event include:

  • Olorundare Sunday Thomas, commissioner for insurance and CEO of the National Insurance Commission of Nigeria
  • Caesar Mwangi, group CEO of ICEA Lion Group
  • Lesley Ndlovu, CEO of Africa Risk Capacity
  • Mark Napier, CEO of FSD Africa
  • Beat Strebel, market executive Middle East and Africa, and CEO, of Swiss Re Africa.

The day will also include high-level speakers from the UN, including Butch Bucani, the programme lead for the UN Environment Programme’s PSI.

The fourth PSI Africa Market Event will translate the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) into the context of the African insurance industry. The event will discuss key SDG-relevant sustainability challenges and opportunities for Africa, including the insurance protection gap, the resilience and sustainability of cities, and food and agriculture systems.

Considering the current Covid-19 crisis, the latest pandemic situation and the subsequent changing African sustainability landscape will also be considered throughout the day.

The PSI Africa Market Event is an annual conference. Previous editions were hosted in Johannesburg, Lagos and last year at Victoria Falls.

PSI Africa Market Events convene PSI members and other leading insurance organisations (Africa-domiciled organisations and global organisations with African operations), insurance regulators, city/local and national government officials, key international initiatives, business and industry, civil society organisations and members of academia.
