What risks and challenges do small-scale producers of oilseeds in Uganda face, and could agricultural insurance help them manage and mitigate those risks?
A feasibility study carried out for the INSURED programme set out to answer those questions and provide concrete recommendations for the design and delivery of future insurance schemes. This brief sums up the study’s findings.
INSURED is a technical assistance programme working to strengthen agricultural insurance in IFAD’s portfolio. The programme is generously funded by Sida and implemented by IFAD through the Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM).
