Senegal

Insurance to withstand drought

21 Dec 2016, BRACED

Under the R4 Rural Resilience Initiative, weather insurance payouts were triggered Ethiopia, Senegal and Malawi to withstand the El Niño-related droughts in 2015 and 2016. The approach contributed to farmers’ food security in times of need. Drawing on this experience, lessons learned highlight possible pathways to increase resilience to similar crises.
