Forum for Agricultural Risk Management in Development


Growing awareness of
ag

risks and increasing
interest in risk management strategies and
approaches


The

sustainable forum for practitioners to
exchange information and experiences


Practitioners are operating in silos. This does
not serve the needs of developing countries.
