    This paper evaluates the effectiveness of a new index-based livestock insurance (IBLI)

    product designed to compensate for area average predicted livestock mortality loss in

    northern Kenya, where previous work has established the presence of poverty traps. We

    simulate household-specific wealth dynamics based on a model parameterized using rich

    panel and experimental data from the region. The simulations allow us to investigate

    patterns of willingness to pay for asset index insurance that is imperfectly correlated with

    Land use and land cover change is driven by human actions and also drives changes that limit availability of products and services for human and livestock, and it can undermine environmental health as well. Therefore, this study was aimed at understanding land use and land cover change in Lenche Dima and Kuhar Michael of Amhara region, Ethiopia. Time-series satellite images that included Landsat MSS, TM, ETM+ and ASTER, which covered the time frame between 1972/3 to 2005, were used.

    This paper describes a novel effort at developing index-based insurance for locationaveraged livestock mortality as a means to fill an important void in the risk management instruments available to protect the main asset of pastoralists in the arid and semi-arid lands of Kenya, where insurance markets are effectively absent and uninsured risk exposure is a main cause of the existence of poverty traps.
