Index-based Flood insurance: addressing questions of equity

The project will identify the social and gender equity issues associated with crop insurance in general and the index-based flood insurance developed by IWMI in particular, and develop recommendations on institutional mechanisms that can help reduce distributive and procedural inequities. The research will build on a household survey to assess existing inequities, vulnerabilities and different perceptions of risks associated with floods. We will then conduct some qualitative fieldwork in sampled sites where the insurance mechanism will be implemented during/right after the implementation.
