ABSTRACT
Climate change will lead to a variety of climate disasters, and climate disasters have a greater impact on China's food production. Weather index insurance is a new financial way to avoid risk of climate disasters effectively in China's food production. Firstly, the relationship between weather index insurance and food production in China was elaborated, and then the development status, advantages and disadvantages of weather index insurance in China at present were analyzed. Finally, some countermeasures against the problems of weather index insurance in China were put forward.
