Research address farmer demand and other determinants of scaling, how insurance influences adaptive or maladaptive behaviour, index and insurance design, gender-specific insurance needs, strategies to engage youth and exploit their creative influence on farming communities, bundling, communication challenges at scale, public-private partnerships, and sustainable business models.

Expected research outputs include:

  • evidence of the benefits of agricultural insurance on smallholder livelihoods and adoption of CSA; and the factors that determine benefit;
  • tools and indexes that better cover important risks and raise satisfaction of farmers and insurers, including atlases of risks and triggers for weather index insurance in target countries;
  • science-based schemes, and sustainable public-private partnership and business models for effective agricultural insurance;
  • approaches for sharing knowledge and building capacity to provide effective agricultural insurance at scale, including South-South learning.
