Risk Management Tools for EU Agriculture with a special focus on insurance

Working Document

This report provides an overview of the different types of risk that agriculture faces and evidence of risk exposure in European agriculture. After looking at the tools available to manage agricultural risk, it examines the reasons and objectives of government intervention and discusses the policy instruments Member States and other countries use to help their farmers in dealing with risk exposure. The lessons that can be learned from existing public involvement in agricultural risk management form the basis for reflections concerning the potential of applying risk management policies at the EU-level.
