Bharti AXA: Protecting Producers through Private Crop Insurance
Delivering a just rural transition through state-subsidized private insurance for crop risk management
Crop Insurance for India’s Producers by Bharti AXA
State-subsidized private crop insurance for 2.5 million farmers across India
There are over 125 million smallholder farmers in India, part of an agricultural sector worth 18% of GDP. A long supply chain supporting many hundreds of millions more is reliant on their production being resilient. Most of these smallholders lack access to or choose not to take out insurance products for their crops. As climate change intensifies unpredictable weather, it will be increasingly important for these farmers to have access to suitable insurance cover.
