20 April, 2016

On February 25th, 2016 there was a webinar on how governments can catalyse the development of agriculture insurance markets. Listen back to the webinar to learn more.

This webinar looked at how governments can catalyse the development of agriculture insurance markets through a variety of interventions such as the provision, administration and management of subsidies, support for developing infrastructure for effective implementation of insurance programmes, investment in collection and sharing of data and customer education. It also looked at the government's role in developing enabling regulations and using insurance as a part of their social protection and agriculture development agendas. Organized together with the Global Index Insurance Facility (GIIF) of the World Bank Group, the USAID & Basis/I4-supported Global Action Network for agriculture insurance, it featured resource persons from USAID, the World Bank and the Government of Kenya.
