The UNDP is organizing a National Conference on the Status of Microinsurance in India, in collaboration with academic and policy centres- the Centre for Insurance and Risk Management (CIRM) and Centre for Micro Finance (CMF) at the Institute for Financial Management and Research (IFMR). The conference is scheduled for December 10th and 11th 2009 at Essex Farms in New Delhi.
