  • Protecting the snow leopard and enhancing farmers' livelihoods : a pilot insurance scheme in Baltistan
  • Discussion of a pilot insurance plan to save the snow leopard in Balistan, a district in the Pakistani-controlled sector of Jammu and Kashmir State, while protecting farmers from predatory losses to their livestock, tipically goats. Each farmer pays
  • a premium based on head of livestock. In addition, trekking expeditions focusing on the snow leopard contribute to the fund. The insurance fund is jointly managed by a village committee and Project Snow Leopard (PSL) staff. - (SLD)
