KlimALEZ - Increasing climate resilience via agricultural insurance

The project’s overarching goal is to strengthen the resilience of Central Asia’s agricultural sector by innovative insurance markets against climatic risks, in particular drought. By an interdisciplinary approach and in cooperation with German and local insurance companies we will develop a demand-oriented, index-based agricultural insurance program for various Central Asian countries. In the scope of an insurance pilot, the developed insurance product will be sold to producers in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
