Presentation slides to be posted soon.
This event, "Climate-proofing One-Third of the World: Tools for Resilient Drylands," highlighted the Index-based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) research that Andrew Mude is being recognized for as the recipient of this year's prestigious Norman Borlaug Award for Field Research and Application.

This research is over a decade in the making, with its most recent success, the scaling of the program in Kenya as part of government led social safety net program. Please click the links for more information about all of our work in IBLI.
