USAID: “CLIMBS’ Weather Protect Insurance is a tool for resiliency”

In a recent published article on, Emily Varga, the senior cooperative development advisor, USAID Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation (DDI)/Local, Faith, and Transformative Partnerships (LFT), Betsy Ness-Edelstein, the evaluation team lead, Abt Associates, and Sarah Carson, the evaluation research coordinator, Abt Associates, compiled a series of perspectives extracted from the performance evaluations of four USAID specialists from Peru, the Philippines, Kenya, and Paraguay on the recent Cooperative Development Program (CDP), which aims to support initiatives that advance the cooperative sector in the respective countries where USAID is located.

One of the specialists, Mr. Jay de Quiros, an economic growth specialist from USAID Missions Philippines, briefly cited CLIMBS Life and General Insurance Cooperative’s Weather Protect Insurance (WPI) as an example of how the development of crop insurance products acts as a tool for resilience among farmers and the integration of resilience frameworks into future activity designs.

“This enables faster payouts without necessitating slow and cumbersome field validation done in traditional insurance schemes,” he stated during the interview when asked about the role of cooperatives and credit unions in how they can contribute to resilience in the country.

The Weather Protect Insurance, which was created in 2021, is the first parametric insurance that guarantees that farmers and cooperative members will be able to receive payouts for the risk caused by disaster or calamity through various trigger parameters that measure rainfall and wind speed.

When it comes to enhancing the economic situation of small-scale farmers, improving agriculture productivity, and promoting sustainable farming practices, projects like the WPI provide a practical example of how the cooperative sector plays a crucial role in revitalizing the agriculture industry through these projects by starting at the grassroots level and using a solutions-based bottom-up approach when it comes to resolving issues brought on by tragedy or climate change.

Abuyog St. Francis Xavier Credit Cooperative

It’s a WOW clap for CLIMBS InsurTech! We’re happy that CLIMBS responds to the demand of new generation of high technology.  InsurTech is a user-friendly technology for me since it made me easier to insure and issue policies on Non-Life Insurance, unlike before there were lots of paperworks to do. Now, even if you’re not in the office as long as there is an internet connection we can easily issue policy.

InsurTech is very helpful in this new normal because our clients don’t need to go to our office to avail like our CTPL, because we can just send their policy via email and they can pay the premium thru Gcash. hassle-free. Thank you CLIMBS and to Sir Merboy for being responsive with all my concerns.

More Power and God Bless!

All are system generated, including Policy, COC and Authentications. In times of no internet connection, no need to worry coz mobile data will do. The Insurtech Application is very useful during pandemic times, coz I can accommodate client and issue policy wherever I go and send the policy via email or messenger. Thank you
