About the Programme

The Climate Risk Adaptation and Insurance in the Caribbean programme seeks to help vulnerable people adapt to extreme weather events. The programme will design and implement products that combine risk reduction and insurance for low-income groups such as small farmers and day labourers in the region.

Project Updates

In August 2011, the project team conducted meetings, workshops and community visits with stakeholders in five pilot countries to introduce the programme, establish relationships with key stakeholders and to gather data.

The Insurance Products

Two insurance products are being developed, The Livelihood Shock Absorber is intended to provide low income people with an amount of money within a short period of time and The Loan Portfolio Cover is intended to provide portfolio-level protection against default for lender institutions.
