Protect a Farmer’s Livelihood from Climate-Related Risks
For generations, farmers have passed down knowledge of local weather patterns. Using this knowledge, farmers plan harvest cycles by forecasting rain and changes in temperature. Accurately reading the weather means the difference between a bountiful harvest and a lost crop.
But weather patterns are shifting and becoming less predictable due to climate change. Droughts, floods and extreme temperatures are common, and can wipe out crops and livestock. A single calamity can destroy a farmer’s assets for the entire year.
MIA and our partners are developing composite insurance to protect farmers against climate related risks. Your financial support helps MIA provide assistance to communities to set up and operate insurance schemes protecting against illness, crop and livestock loss, and natural disaster.
