Insurance and risks
Agriculture, as an economic activity, directly depends on the natural environment, is vulnerable to different biological (pests and diseases) and climate-environmental (climate change, droughts, floods, etc.) phenomena. All this makes it necessary to apply a strategic approach to managing the risks inherent in this activity. At present, various mechanisms and instruments are dealing with risk analysis and management. Professionals in the sector need continuous training and updating on the essential set of new technologies and tools under development.
