Increasing climate resilience via agricultural insurance – Innovation transfer for sustainable rural development in Central Asia

Logo KlimALEZ

Research domain:
Reduction of and adaptation to environmental risks
Project duration:
01.12.2017 - 30.11.2022
Investigated countries:
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan

The project’s overarching goal is to strengthen the resilience of Central Asia’s agricultural sector by innovative insurance markets against climatic risks, in particular drought. By an interdisciplinary approach and in cooperation with German and local insurance companies we will develop a demand-oriented, index-based agricultural insurance program for various Central Asian countries. In the scope of an insurance pilot, the developed insurance product will be sold to producers in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Furthermore, the impact of insurances on farmers’ production decisions and rural welfare will be measured. The experimental study design (randomized controlled trial, RCT) will allow scientific robust and tangible insights concerning the impact of modern insurance markets on food security, climate resilience and sustainable production. Ultimately, the research results aim at supporting national governments in implementing a sustainable insurance program on national scale.
