This technical brief describes efforts to develop remote sensing products for index-based flood insurance (IBFI) that can accurately depict yield loss due to adverse weather and other disasters on smallholder farms, with a particular attention to IBFI as a tool for reaching the most socially vulnerable populations. The overarching goal is to help smallholder farmers better manage their production risks and thereby help contribute to a more secure future for farmers in India. Once these remote sensing products are developed, tried and tested the team aim to ensure that they are scalable to enable them to be used effectively in large scale insurance schemes.
