Programme Highlight

Index-based insurance is a different kind of insurance that has the potential to create opportunities for farmers to access finance and better farm inputs that can help protect their livelihoods after sub-optimal growing seasons. This type of insurance operates in a system that includes government and the private sector, local insurance companies and international reinsurers, banks and agricultural value chains. Understanding the interrelations between the system elements is essential to ensure development, farmer acceptance, and sustainable growth over time.
