The Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM), a G8-G20 initiative hosted by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), is a multi-donor artnership co-financed by the European Commission (EC), Agence Française de Développement (AfD), Italian Government and IFAD, to support Governments and stakeholders on Agricultural Risk Management (ARM). The Platform works in strategic partnership with NEPAD / CAADP in African countries to mainstream agricultural risk management into the national agricultural policy and investment plans (www.p4arm.org). The German cooperation support PARM through an agreement KfWNEPAD. This study supports the PARM risk and feasibility assessment work in Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal, and Uganda. PARM is currently working also in Liberia and Zambia.
Information is the main input for risk assessment and the design of risk management tools and strategies. An efficient holistic approach to ARM requires information from a large diversity of sources covering all agricultural risks, with long enough time series and disaggregated enough information. Furthermore, accessibility of information is key for all users, including farmers, to ensure that it is used for ARM in symmetric equal conditions and to facilitate the development of efficient risk management and risk transfer tools. PARM experience in managing agricultural risk in African countries shows that information is one of the main constraints. This study assesses Information Systems for Agricultural Risk Management (IS-ARM) in seven African countries using a common methodology. The information in this study aims to contribute to define the priorities, strategies and investment plans for information systems in seven African countries, and to learn cross country lessons about the strength and weaknesses of Agricultural Risk Management Information Systems in Africa.
This publication includes the cross country comparison report, and the executive summaries and policy briefs on Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal, and Uganda. The full country reports are available in the PARM website ww.p4arm.org.
The study was conducted for the Platform for Agricultural Risk Management by the Research Centre for the Management of Agricultural and Environmental Risks (CEIGRAM), a research centre of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and VISAVET- Health Surveillance Centre, a research centre of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, both in Spain. The team contact person is Alberto Garrido (alberto.garrido@upm.es). Team members from CEIGRAM-UPM are Alberto Garrido, José M. Sumpsi, Isabel Bardají, Marina Martínez, M. Inés Mínguez, Carlos Hernández, Lucía Rodriguez, Ana María Tarquis, Rosa M. Benito, Esperanza Luque. Team members form VISAVETUCM are J.M. Sánchez-Vizcaíno, Joaquín Goyache, Marta Martínez, Ángel M. Ramos, José Luis Sierra, José María López, Eduardo Fernández, Beatriz Villa, Laura Rico, Almudena Morate, Raquel Vargas
