Index Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) Marsabit Household Survey Round 2

The second (follow-up) round of socio-economic household survey to evaluate the impact of Index Based Livestock Insurance (IBLI) in Marsabit, Northern Kenya.

International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Cornell University, University of California-Davis, and Syracuse University in collaboration with implementing partners, UAP Insurance Company and Equity Bank piloted in January 2010 a market-mediated index-based insurance product, designed to protect pastoralists from drought-related livestock mortality, in Marsabit district. To better understand and monitor the success of IBLI, there is the need for continuous impact evaluation and assessment, tracking the changes in well-being of individual households that can be attributed to the program and product. To that end, the IBLI team carried out a pre-intervention baseline survey (October-November 2009) and complemented it with annual follow-up rounds from 2010 to 2013. The details of the survey and the data are described in the data codebook.

ILRI_prjabstract Since 2008, ILRI and its partners in the public, private, and non-profit sectors have pursued a comprehensive research agenda aimed at designing, developing, and implementing market-mediated index-based insurance to protect livestock keepers from drought related asset losses, particularly those in the drought prone Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs). For pastoralists whose livelihoods rely solely or partly on livestock, the resulting high livestock mortality rate has devastating effects on asset levels, rendering them among the most vulnerable populations in Kenya and Ethiopia. Index-based insurance represents an exciting innovation that could allow vulnerable rural smallholder farmers and livestock keepers to benefit from insurance and thus reduce climate-related risk. Because index insurance is based on the realization of an outcome that cannot be influenced by insurers or policy holders (such as the amount and distribution of rainfall over a season), it has a relatively simple and transparent structure. This makes such products easier to administer and consequently more cost-effective to develop and trade. Indeed the success of several pilot programs in India and various countries in Africa and Latin America has proven the feasibility and affordability of such products.
