Towards ex ante policies for catastrophic risks in the Netherlands

The main risk-related policies in the Netherlands are implemented within the EU Common Agricultural Policy. Dutch policies focus on the management of catastrophic risks by promoting public-private partnerships, such as Livestock Veterinary Fund, to manage the costs of livestock epidemics. Mutual insurance companies that specialise in the coverage of specific types of risks are also encouraged and, recently, a subsidised multi-peril yield insurance was launched in the context of the new Health Check framework. This policy analysis is part of a larger report structured around three layers of risk – normal, market and catastrophic – that require differentiated policy responses.
