Karim Traore, President of Burkina Faso's National Union of Cotton Producers, speaks about the cotton farmer's experience with agricultural index-based insurance in a new GIIF Result Stories. “It would be difficult for me to provide exact data, however, I can tell you that index insurance strongly encourages farmers in their work, and we are finding that cotton production has increased in all of the areas where farmers have subscribed to it," says Mr. Traore.
 
The Result Stories is part of a new bilingual series produced in 2017 to capture farmers' experiences with index insurance in Burkina Faso, Mali, and Senegal.
