A focus on small-scale farmers in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, and Grenada.

This paper contributes toward research on gender and risk finance and insurance, including increasing the local knowledge base of indigenous sources of information to inform national and regional level strategies for the inclusion of marginalised groups. More specifically, the aim is to explore to what extent small-scale farmers – with a focus on women farmers in Barbados, Grenada, and Antigua and Barbuda – have access to parametric insurance and to provide recommendations on the types of additional actions and research needed to improve access and uptake.
