In a nutshell, a feasibility study identifies opportunities and constraints for insurance and verifies whether or not to proceed with the implementation of a scheme. It should follow an agricultural risk assessment. A feasibility study focuses on a specific context, such as a selected target group, within a certain agricultural value chain and geographical area. It may also focus on an existing insurance scheme where a change is being explored, or on an emerging situation where something new is needed.
In Uganda, INSURED is supporting the IFAD-financed portfolio to implement insurance for oilseed farmers. The feasibility study was the first step in investigating the existing situation and analysing the risks and challenges faced by the producers and stakeholders along the value chain. The brief sums up the findings and gives details about the area yield index insurance that has been proposed and the next steps. The full feasibility study is available on request from [email protected]
