|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/.
