R4 makes weather insurance available to poor farmers and rural households by giving them the option to pay for premiums with their labor. While diversifying the partnership base, COMENGIP seeks to extend outcomes to community based organizations. Local microfinance institutions once sensitized will be put to contribution regarding shift. Innovation builds on the success inherent to risk transfer for climate adaptation, already completed in Ethiopia. By 2016, over 18,000 households in Senegal are expected to have access to such insurance.
