Nathaniel Jensen, Christopher Barrett, Andrew Mude. (1/5/2015). The favourable impacts of Index-Based Livestock Insurance: Evaluation results from Ethiopia and Kenya.
The Index-Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) product leverages the strong correlation between a remotely sensed vegetation index and livestock losses associated with forage shortages to offer insurance coverage to pastoralists in regions without access to conventional insurance products. The IBLI product was first launched in January 2010 and is now available in several regions of northern Kenya and in the Borana region of southern Ethiopia.
