    Risk Mitigation and Management for Agricultural Investment : Investment and Resource Mobilization

    The incidence of risk in agriculture is important to policy makers at national and international levels. Fluctuations in producer incomes, and particularly the threat of catastrophic loss, may present difficult welfare problems for these same producers, their governments, and the international community. Trading losses at the level of market intermediaries, such as traders and processors, negatively impact the development of sustainable trading and finance activities in the commodity sectors. In more extreme cases, international humanitarian assistance may be necessary, but that assistance may destabilize markets, create dependencies, or bias management via expectations of future disaster relief.
