Over the past years, many institutions have placed considerable importance on Agricultural Risk Management (ARM). Despite the experience and know-how could have been leveraged to develop more comprehensive strategies to cope with the risks, bottlenecks in terms of insufficient knowledge transfer between countries, lack of a structured lessons learned management system, and low take-up of innovation still persist in the area of agricultural risk management.
In this context, the Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) – in collaboration with its partners – has raised the need to foster the exchange of knowledge and bring together the experience available on ARM in developing countries, with the objective to build and develop an organized collection of good practices and lessons learned as guidance for policy makers and rural development practitioners to strategically implement and mainstream an holistic ARM approach at global, regional and country level.
ECDPM’s Francesco Rampa will sit on the panel discussing ‘Mainstreaming ARM holistic approach into policy for better design and investment’.
