In September 2018, SFSA through its Agricultural Insurance team convened a conference entitled "New routes to smallholder prosperity; Unlocking the potential of farm insurance and finance".

Earlier in the year, SFSA had commissioned the Initiative for Smallholder Finance (ISF) to review agriculture microinsurance for smallholders. The findings of this global landscape study formed the basis for the speeches and panel discussions. The conference brought together well over 100 representatives of the development sector, insurance and reinsurance, regulatory and policy bodies, academia and the private sector. They gathered in Basel, Switzerland, to examine gaps and challenges in risk management, and to explore new ideas and partnerships.
