Presentation: A Quasi-experimental Study of a Discontinued Insurance Product in Haiti

The benefits of group index-insurance include averaging basis risk across spatially disbursed groups and reducing individual-level basis risks. By analyzing a hybrid index insurance product in Haiti there is an opportunity to understand how microfinance were linked to local groups.

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.
