China Weather Index Insurance Project (WII)

You are here

The China Weather Index-Based Insurance Project (China WII), supported by the British Embassy Beijing, aims to create markets of digital insurance in rural areas by engaging public-private stakeholders. The project partners with policymakers, insurance companies, financial institutions, and insurance-tech players to introduce digital technology-empowered insurances, such as Weather Index-Based Insurance (WII) across the country over the next three years. The project also elevates its strategy from "product piloting" at inception to "creating markets" as of now. The four strategic pillars of this new strategy are climate change adaptation, tech-enabled innovations, policy advocacy, and international knowledge transfer.
