This work uses a contingent valuation and a factor analysis to respectively measure pastoralists’ willingness to pay (WTP) and characterize their profile in the context of Senegal. Using primary data on 300 pastoralists, our results show that 50% of the respondents are ready to pay at least 3000 CFA (around 6 USD) to insure against forage shortage due to drought, no matter the animal considered (cattle, sheep or goat) or the type of contract proposed to them (coverage of 1 animal, 5 most important animals or the entire herd). Pastoralists who declared higher level of WTP are not the wealthiest or the most exposed to shocks among the pastoralists in our sample.

Keywords : WTP, Contingent Valuation, Index-Based Livestock Insurance, Factor Analysis, Pastoralists.
