5 Responses to The drivers of index-based livestock insurance demand in southern Ethiopia

  1. The livestock market must be support by IBLI to be a profitable business.

  2. I thought it was interesting that to help pastoralists manage drought risk and protect assets, the International Livestock Research Institute, together with Cornell University and the Oromia Insurance Company, introduced index-based livestock insurance (IBLI). This was a great way to equalize the insurance on animals for the farmers. Do you agree that insurance on the livestock matters?

      I believe it does, but I am conducting another research on the impact of IBLI on pastoralist livelihoods to assess whether my belief is true. Hopefully I can introduce some results on this page soon!

    This is interesting. However, it is not clear if coupons are based on the # of livestock heads or just households.

    • Kazushi Takahashi says:

      Thank you very much for your interest. Coupons are distributed to randomly selected households, regardless of the number of livestock they own and herd.
