Presentation: Interlinking Insurance and Product Markets: Experimental Evidence from Contract Farming in Kenya

Sugarcane contract farming in Western Kenya use inputs as credit to farmers. The result is payment through harvest deductions. The way the experimental insurance will be designed is through a double trigger structure between individual plots and area yields. 

This presentation is based on the AMA Innovation Lab projects for the BASIS AMA CRSP/I4 Index Insurance Innovation Initiative Technical Committee Meeting. This event was a gathering of researchers and stakeholders involved with the Index Insurance Innovation Initiative (I4) at UC Davis.

This presentation took place at George Washington University, United States on November 6, 2014.
