Closing the gap: Flood protection for Bangladesh
Flooding is a key cause of persistent poverty in Bangladesh. In a first pilot, more than 1500 households benefit from a flood insurance scheme through a local NGO. The scheme uses pre-defined measurements of water level and flooding duration to offer emergency compensation in the case of floods. This is less expensive and more efficient than assessing specific flood losses on an individual household level.
