A policy framework for risk management in agriculture

The holistic framework for risk management analysis focuses on the interactions and trade-offs between different risks, policies and strategies. It also structures the analysis around three layers of risk that deserve a differentiated policy response: normal, insurable and catastrophic risks. Following this approach, this chapter synthesises several pieces of analytical work and policy experiences from OECD and is organised around four principal ideas: empowering farmers to manage normal risks, enhancing the functioning of risk markets, steering disaster assistance, and disentangling income support from income stabilisation.
