Case Study: Weather Index Insurance in Bangladesh

You are here

In 2015, IFC, supported by GIIF, launched the Weather Index Insurance project with Green Delta Insurance Company (GDIC), to develop insurance products to address perils such as drought, excess rain, heat waves, and cold spells in Bangladesh. In October 2015, during the initial days of the project, GDIC and IFC approached Supreme Seed Company for index insurance partnership for their contract farming farmers. A case study was developed to capture the activity.
