Description:

Almost thirty key players from different types of organizations working on the agriculture insurance space launched the Global Action Network (GAN) on Agricultural Insurance, which is envisioned as a community of experts and practitioners aligned to address the gaps that hinder the effective and responsible scaling of agriculture insurance. This kick-off meeting provided participants with an opportunity to discuss the state of agriculture insurance, including challenges, successes, impacts and gaps, and explore solutions that a global network can undertake to address key challenges clustered around contract design, risk finance and reinsurance, and models for market development. The GAN was launched by the ILO in coordination with the ASIS/I4 Index Insurance Innovation Initiative at the University of California Davis (BASIS), and with support from the USAID.
