The Potential for Agricultural Insurance in the Philippines

This study aims to assess the potential for the introduction of agricultural insurance services in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) in the Philippines, with a view to fostering smallholders' resilience against extreme natural events, such as floods, droughts and hurricanes, and promote their capacity to recover from such shocks. The study focuses on analyzing and showcasing the opportunities and benefits associated with the introduction of tailored disaster risk insurance protection for small-scale farmers in BARMM; the core roadblocks and constraints that limit the diffusion of such services in the region's agriculture sector; and options for the implementation of agri-insurance coverage based on different scenarios of collaboration involving public, private and non-profit stakeholders active in the region.
