As part of GIIF's mandate to promote financial literacy on agriculture insurance and index-based insurance, the GIIF program is launching eLearning modules to encourage and facilitate self-paced learning on the subject matters.  The objective of the "Introduction to Index Insurance" course is to introduce basic concepts of and information on agriculture and index insurance as well as related topics such as the use of data in product design, pricing, and livestock index insurance. The course is suitable for the general public, professionals in the insurance and agricultural sectors, and policymakers.
The four modules contain qualitative information on:
1) Agriculture Insurance
2) Data Issues
3) Overview of Pricing
4) Index-based Livestock Insurance
Any interested learner can access the English self-paced eLearning modules here.  The French version is here. << La version française est aussi disponible. >>
New users should follow the instruction in the enrollment guide here before logging in.
