Weather Index Insurance is an innovative risk management tool for small-scale farmers in developing countries. In Zambia, weather insurance has been implemented for over 72,000 farmers since 2013. Over 4 seasons, approximately USD 800,000 has been paid out in claims due to bad weather, particularly drought and dry spells. This video documents some of the lessons learnt from the product development and implementation, with a particular focus on the cotton sector in Zambia.

According to Eva Chipepo, a local villager, rainfall is insufficient to give us a good crop yield and wild animals have started to wander in the fields, further destroying crops.

With funding from the Global Environment Facility’s Least Developed Countries Fund, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is supporting a flagship program of the Zambia Meteorological Department which provides regular weather forecast and agriculture advisory for farming communities in Zambia. The aim of the Climate Information and Early Warning Systems(CIEWS) Project is to minimise the impact of adverse weather on crops and boost agricultural production. Through the project, the Met Department has installed 68 automated weather stations plus 40 manual stations across the country. These stations also act as early warning systems for communities that are vulnerable to flooding and other longer-term climate change challenges. The early warnings provided by the project enable farme...

But even when you operate small, it’s possible to grow crops throughout the year by irrigation. Joel Cherop is a young model farmer in Kapchorwa district who is engaged in irrigation. Ivan Kimuli Kigozi speaks to Cherop in this edition of On the Farm.
