Abstract

As the effects of climate change in Africa become increasingly pronounced, government policymaking should build effective adaptation measures. But the lack of data on African climate risks is a barrier to knowing how. New research shows that insurance policies can produce useful information on climate risks and help to build effective risk management and decision-making.
