Policy Brief: Effective Agriculture Insurance Programs



Vietnam’s experience with agriculture insurance is relatively long-standing, although a formal government-led national program was only implemented in 2011 through the National Agricultural Insurance Pilot Program (NAIPP) which was implemented for three years. Having in mind the interest of the topic for ASEAN countries and the commitment for regional cooperation and knowledge sharing through the ASEAN-CRN, IPSARD included in their assessment a section on lessons learned for ASEAN countries to take into account for developing their own agriculture insurance programs. The recommendations are structured along the key decisions and building blocks for designing such a program.Download here.


The ASEAN-CRN is established to ensure that ASEAN member states are in a better position to adapt their agricultural sector to climate change and optimize its mitigation potential. The network promotes climate resiliency through exchange of information, expertise, and experiences on Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) among ASEAN member states. By providing a dialogue platform on CSA in the region, the ASEAN-CRN links policy makers to scientific institutions, universities, national research institutions in agriculture, and international organizations.
