The adverse events framework and collective action in New Zealand

Agriculture in New Zealand has operated with no policy interventions on the markets and only limited government support. Risk management policy has focused on the prevention of pest and disease incursions. Assistance related to natural catastrophes is delivered within the Adverse Events Framework programme, while the government contributes to knowledge and information systems to support private risk management efforts. This policy analysis is part of a larger report structured around three layers of risk – normal, market and catastrophic – that require differentiated policy responses.
