These are model terms of reference (ToRs) for use by project designers and implementers in development organizations and governments. The objective of the ToRs is to support the contracting of a specialized service provider to technically assist in the implementation of agricultural insurance within a development project. This will include the insurance scheme development and rollout. The ToRs include an outline of the required steps and processes, a timeline and a list of deliverables, together with information on the profile of the service provider or team of experts.
The ToRs are part of a toolkit provided by the INSURED programme (Insurance for Rural Resilience and Economic Development), which is generously financed by Sida (the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency). Before use, the ToRs should be tailored and adapted to the project and context.
