Earlier this spring, EpiX Analytics presented a customized week-long risk analysis modeling class in Lagos, Nigeria. The course content was partly based on the World Bank Group's handbook co-authored by EpiX entitled, Risk Modeling for Appraising Named Peril Index Insurance Products.

The course was part of the Global Index Insurance Facility's (GIIF) training aimed at risk analysts and focusing on risk modeling techniques for evaluating index insurance products. It is part of the World Bank Group's GIIF program that "facilitates access to finance for smallholder farmers, to strengthen the financial resilience for the poor against the impact of climate change and natural disasters, and to sustain food production for local communities and larger markets".
