|Abstract:||A technical workshop on "The Challenges of Index-Based Insurance For Food Security in Developing Countries", organized by the JRC and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), was held in Ispra, Italy May 2-3, 2012. Attendants from a wide spectrum of technical areas (remote sensing to crop modelling and economics), types of business (insurance and reinsurance companies to government and international organizations) and levels of involvement with the farming community (from research to actual insurance implementation on a commercial basis) were well represented at the conference. This document is a collection of extended abstracts of the papers presented at the workshop.|
