Improving Delivery of Drought Insurance Through Digital Applications

Survey in Africa

Project Description

This project aims to contribute to our ongoing efforts to effectively and efficiently deliver the Index-Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) product to pastoralist clients in eight counties in Kenya. Leveraging innovations in mobile and web-based applications, we seek to cost-effectively deliver IBLI products and related services to IBLI’s target clientele in remote communities.

Research Overview

The goals of this project include designing and implementing Standard Operating Procedures related to the recruitment, training and incentivizing of insurance agents, and implementing new monitoring and evaluation methods to track the performance of agents providing IBLI and potentially other relevant financial services.

This IBLI team is implementing the work in partnership with Takaful Insurance of Africa for a period of 18 months. The work is designed based on previous studies done on understanding and evaluating the agency structure being used for the delivery of IBLI.
