Dealing with Extreme Weather in Agriculture
Weather extremes threaten global food security and heavily affect rural communities’ livelihoods. The number and magnitude of many perils is expected to increase with climate change putting an additional burden on farmers and the society. To assure a resilient farming systems, insurance solutions have a long tradition in providing payouts to producers suffering from losses.
The here presented results contribute to a better quantitation of climate and weather risks in agricultural production and provide insights into efficient risk management solutions. For that we bring together a multidisciplinary group of speakers from agronomy, economics, climate research, and plant science to shed light on weather risks from different perspectives.
