The Index-Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) project in Ethiopia, with support from the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Assets and Market Access, has already made groundbreaking contributions to strengthening resilience and economic viability of pastoralists in East Africa. This project explored index insurance contracts in which payments are based on an easily observable index that is correlated with, but not identical to individual loss.
