(Prabhakar, et al [Eds.], 2015) Agrarian and poor communities in general in the Asia-Pacific region are highly vulnerable to climate change. Effective reduction of vulnerabilities requires aligning sustainable development (SD), climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) initiatives. Insurance has been increasingly advocated as a risk management tool both by the CCA and DRR communities. However, to what extent insurance has been able to provide risk management benefits is not clearly evident from available experience.
