Description

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) launched a series of e-learning courses on Agricultural Risk Management.

Agriculture is a risky sector. Extreme weather conditions, pests and diseases, and market uncertainties are just a few examples of events that can negatively affect farming activities, posing a major threat to households livelihood and food security. This course will present an overview of concepts linked to agricultural risk management, describing which risks farmers face, within a holistic approach that covers the entire agri-food system.​​​​​​​

The target audience for this course includes:

  • Farmers, farm management advisors, farmer organizations and communities;
  • Policymakers and planners, and other government officials; and
  • Service and input providers and other intermediaries dealing with agricultural risk management services.
