Title: Frontier studies in agricultural insurance / H. Holly Wang, Jesse B. Tack, Keith H. Coble
Author: Wang Holly, H.
Notes: Sumario: Agricultural production is considered important in both developed and developing countries for its roles in food provision and rural employment. In a risky sector such as agriculture, insurance is the most effective risk mitigation tool widely available throughout the world and heavily subsidised by governments. The global agricultural insurance market is worth about USD 30 billion (AMR 2019). Agricultural insurance is also an active area of research, especially when new types of insurance mechanisms are being developed, when new crops, livestock and other natural resource products are being included, and also when new policies are being created to support it. This special issue of The Geneva Papers on Risk and Insurance is devoted to the topic of agricultural risks and insurance.
