Building on two national surveys conducted by NFF, the study will (i) examine the use and willingness to pay for WBII products, (ii) assess the utility of the WBII products of 60 farmers by employing financial performance indices, and (iii) evaluate the viability of WBII insurance programs from the re/insurance perspective using risk dispersal model to gauge the sustainability of providing liquidity to the WBII market.
The research outcome will help to provide critical information on the viability of WBII products to hedge extreme weather events.
