The Weather Risk Management Facility, a joint undertaking of IFAD and WFP, reviewed a range of recent experiences with index insurance programmes around the world, analysing the key actors, features of the products, and their successes and challenges. These pilot programmes have demonstrated the great potential of index insurance as a risk-management tool. They suggest that index insurance could not only provide an additional effective, market-mediated solution to promote agricultural development, but it could also make disaster relief more effective.

This case study on innovative microinsurance distribution analyses the case of an agriculture input supplier who purchased a blanket insurance product that insured an agreed value of seeds against low rainfall in the sowing season. The company, leveraging its robust marketing channels, passed on the benefits of this cover to farmers who purchased the seeds in small pre-packed quantities. The insurance cover was bundled with the seed packets, covering the extent of its cost. Thus, a mainstream insurance product, without much hassle, was translated into a microinsurance cover.

Financing agriculture value chains in Central America

Agricultural value chain financing (VCF) is an emerging phenomenon in the region but it is not well studied. Historically, small- and medium-sized famers experience problems accessing formal finance. Participation in a well-structured and dynamic supply chain seems to improve chances of obtaining financing, either directly from larger more liquid agents in the same chain or indirectly from external formal lenders based on the type of relationships and degrees of connectedness in the chain (advance sale contracts, technical assistance agreements, length of transaction history, etc.).
