Kenya’s innovation offers a non-traditional insurance product to pastoralists facing extremely high risk from increased drought. The insurance product the team created has helped protect pastoralists’ livelihoods, while encouraging positive drought mitigation strategies.
Drought is becoming more and more frequent in Kenya’s arid lands. Pastoralists, whose livelihoods depend on the land for grazing their livestock, are extremely vulnerable. The way pastoralists have coped with drought in the past isn’t enough to overcome the more frequent and severe drought cycles they are now experiencing. There is increasing potential for one bad year to result in catastrophic losses of livestock – such that pastoralists cannot recover.
