Improving drought response in pastoral regions of Ethiopia S. Pantuliano, M. Wekesa

This study provides an overview of the timing, appropriateness and efficacy of interventions in response to the drought that affected the pastoral lowlands of Ethiopia in 2005/2006. It identifies mechanisms to initiate more timely and appropriate interventions to protect and support pastoral livelihoods and explores donor interest in resourcing these changes.
 It is argued that the problems pastoralists face are structural ones. The authors argue that protecting, building and rebuilding the livelihood assets of pastoralists requires an integrated approach to risk management that goes beyond cash or food transfers to address the underlying factors of pastoral livelihood vulnerability. Drought needs to be seen as a normal and often predictable event, and efforts must be focused on strengthening response capacity while at the same time continuing long-term development efforts.

Index Based Livestock Insurance

The IBLI Index Based Livestock Insurance represents an exciting innovation that could allow vulnerable rural smallholder farmers and livestock keepers tobenefit from insurance and thus reduce climate-related risk. Because index insurance is based on the realization of an outcome that cannot be influenced by insurers or policy holders (such as the amount and distribution of rainfall over a season), it has a relatively simple and transparent structure. This makes such products easier to administer and consequently more cost-effective to develop and trade. Indeed the success of several pilot programs in India and various countries in Africa and Latin America has proven the feasibility and affordability of such products. The status and the progress of IBLI, including the index updates in the intervention areas, can be viewed at http://livestockinsurance.wordpress.com/.
