A range of informal mechanisms to insure rural households against the impact of shocks, but they are a modest component of a risk layering strategy for well-off households and even less protective for low-income households.

Formal insurance mechanisms have inherent market imperfections. State interventions to address these limitations have proven costly and generally are targeted poorly.

Index insurance, such as weather indexing, addresses other inherent problems in insurance by using an indicator that is not affected by individual behaviour and may address monitoring costs and moral hazard.

Moreover, state and submational governments can use insurance to achieve countercyclical funding programs. In this vein, municipal governments in Mexico have used insurance to finance disaster contingency while the World Food Program has insured a portion of its emergency assistance to Ethiopia. Humanitarian organizations and NGOs may also seek insurance in this manner.Taal: Engels; Afmetingen: 3x252x178 mm; Gewicht: 100,00 gram; Formaat: Adobe pdf met kopieerbeveiliging (DRM); Bestandsgrootte: 0.84 MB; Kopieerrechten: Het kopiëren van (delen van) de pagina's is niet toegestaan ; Printrechten: Het printen van de pagina's is niet toegestaan; Voorleesfunctie: De voorleesfunctie is ingeschakeld; Geschikt voor: Alle e-readers geschikt voor ebooks in ePub formaat.
