SME Loss Prevention Framework

A tool to leverage the power of data, awareness and understanding to mitigate risks, minimize losses and promote the sustainability of SMEs.


SMEs are the bedrock of the global economy, yet despite their contribution to socio-economic growth and development, they remain highly vulnerable to a variety of climate and weather-related risks. In the face of these risks, Generali and UNDP’s Insurance and Risk Finance Facility have partnered to develop a loss prevention framework for SMEs by leveraging the power of data, awareness and understanding for businesses in Malaysia.Through this partnership, Generali, and UNDP aspire to contribute towards the InsuResilience Vision 2025. This vision includes reaching 500 million vulnerable people, providing coverage against climate and disaster shocks, extending coverage to 150 million vulnerable people through microinsurance solutions, and placing insurance innovation at the heart of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda.


In partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Under this multiyear partnership, Generali and the Insurance and Risk Finance Facility (IRFF) led by UNDP are blending Generali’s insurance expertise with UNDP’s long-term focus on financing and development to increase the socioeconomic wellbeing of some of the world’s most vulnerable people and places.
