” Ghana is a fitting country to implement index insurance policies and investigate their impact on smallholder farmer welfare. (1) The Ghanaian agricultural sector is dominated by smallholder farmers… (2) Ghanaian smallholder farmers remain highly exposed to agricultural risks, especially in the northern regions of the country where drought probability is higher (3) Ghana is a relatively politically stable country with rule of law … (4) Ghana has relatively developed financial markets including a fledgling agricultural insurance industry that is looking to expand its market and improve the quality of its products. In this context, I will conduct an impact evaluation of an agricultural index insurance program that will be conducted in Ghana.”
