Presentation: Determinants of Chronic and Transient Poverty in Nepal

Nepal has very low rankings in all indicators of human development. As a result, poverty has become a central topic in development discussions. 

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 Saurav Dev Bhatta and Suman Sharma from University of Illinois and Tribhuwan University.
