Financial risks that may impair smallholders’ ability to continue farming: An agricultural risk profiling methodology

Export citation

The idea behind this document is to provide a quick overview of some of the details that might be important for World Agroforestry (ICRAF) when devising new projects in which agricultural risk management1 is a desired component. The document is intended to serve as an addendum to training sessions for ICRAF on agricultural insurance. Please refer to the documentation of the sessions for further information. As learned during the training sessions, in the insurance/reinsurance industry and, in particular, for types of property insurance2, the usual way of gathering information about a certain agricultural risk or farm holding is through a proposal form (also known as questionnaire or risk assessment form).
