Presentation: Conflict and the Intergenerational Transmission of Poverty in Northern Uganda

Conflict and insecurity has driven people deeper into poverty. Education may have supported resilience during conflict and could support bounce-back today. However, government and non-government education policies and programs fail to address the needs of conflict and insecurity affected populations.

This presentation is related to the AMA Innovation Lab projects for the Microfinance Products for Weather Risk Management in Developing Countries. This workshop approaches the efforts and difficulties of pursuing index-based weather insurance as a sustainable market-based product.

This presentation took place in Paris, France on June 25, 2014 and was presented by Kate Bird, Kate Higgins, and Andy McKay from the Chronic Poverty Center.
