Climate Microinsurance: What? Who? How?

In this presentation, Aaron Oxley considers the structure and operational practice of microfinance organisations, looking too at how the model is financed and at the role of key stakeholders from beneficiaries to NGOs and governments. Setting out some of the challenges for the microinsurance sector, Aaron considers how the biggest challenges for climate change microinsurance are the lack of accurate, timely data on weather patterns and the particular nature of climate change harm, in that it causes gradual rather than sudden harm, is difficult to insure.

Aaron Oxley is the Executive Director of RESULTS UK, a grassroots advocacy organisation based in the UK that generates the public and political will to end the root causes of hunger and poverty in the developing world.
