R4 Rural Resilience Initiative: Quarterly Report April-June 2018

R4 Rural Resilience Initiative: Quarterly Report April-June 2018

During this quarter, poor rainfall in parts of Africa triggered the largest insurance payout to date for smallholder farmers under the R4 scheme. Over 31,000 farmers (of whom 52 percent are women) have received insurance payments totalling US$1.5 million to compensate for weather-related crop losses in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Senegal and Zambia. This report presents an overview of the insurance payouts in the 2017-18 agricultural season along with country-specific updates on the progress made during this quarter.
