4.9 Insurance of assets

Insurance of assets is guided by Lead Member policy. Existing COs should follow existing insurance policy, but note that it is important to check if the emergency has created any changes or exclusions to insurance policies. See Annex 18.24 for specific guidelines for CARE USA-managed CO vehicle insurance requirements.

Non-presence operations should consult the coordinating CI Member to put in place insurance for assets. Local legal requirements should also be verified. For example, in some countries it is mandatory to purchase local insurance for vehicles and property.
