Insurance for agricultural microloans for climate change adaptation
As of: August 2018
Objective and activities
This project established a market for innovative insurance products that farmers could use to safeguard against the impact of extreme climate events, thus enabling them to adapt to climate change in the long term. Those insurance products were based on climate and damage data collected over several years. The data could be used to calculate in advance the probability of extreme climate events occurring and the scale of damage expected. This means, farmers received much-needed financial help on time to prepare for the forthcoming climate event.
