Talking about climate risk insurance with women in Ethiopia: How to improve value, access, and delivery
February 5, 2020 - The MIC@M team working in Tigray, Ethiopia collaborated with student researchers from The George Washington University to explore ways to make climate risk insurance programs more gender-inclusive. Through separate focus groups with women and men, we discussed issues related to insurance distribution, value-added services, and marketing and education.
Read about what we learned from the research as well as an overview of our current Managing Risks for Rural Development: Promoting Microinsurance Innovations (MRRD) project in Ethiopia funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in this blog.
