Purpose: This project will facilitate private markets to insure small scale women and men farmers for damage caused by Human Wildlife Conflict (HWC), primarily from elephants. This will provide support for insurance in two countries — Kenya and Sri Lanka - where HWC is a serious threat to livelihoods and to biodiversity and there is interest from private insurers to address this gap in the market. Improved conservation of Loxodonta Africana and Elephas Maximus and reduced negative impacts on wellbeing of poor farmers through reduced human wildlife conflict (HWC) in Kenya and Sri Lanka
