Praise for Agricultural Risk Transfer
"Agricultural Risk Transfer is an outstanding source of technical
information combined with real-world experience by a seasoned industry
expert and should be in the bookshelf of every professional in the
agricultural (re)insurance industry. References to numerous industry
case studies and links to opensource data nicely facilitate the
understanding of the key concepts."
—Dr Lambert Muhr, Head (Agriculture North- and Latin-America), Munich Re (Germany)
"This volume is an important addition to the growing literature on
agricultural risk management. It comprehensively synthesizes a host of
relevant issues related to both mature and emerging agricultural
markets. Agricultural Risk Transfer is a great resource for researchers
and students seeking to gain deeper insight into how insurance and other
financial instruments can stimulate investment in agriculture by
transferring catastrophic risks out of local areas and into global
—Prof Barry Barnett, Chair, Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Kentucky (USA)
"Risk transfer is a crucial element of disaster risk finance and an
important instrument for the sustainable rural development and financial
inclusion. This book summarizes all key concepts of it and comes right
in time as the implementation of more agricultural (re)insurance and
capital market risk transfer solutions is needed more than ever in the
wake of the increasing adverse impact of climate change."
—Thomas Kessler, Principal Finance Specialist (Disaster Insurance), Asia Development Bank (Philippines)

agricultural sector – this book comprehensively analyses and illustrates

instruments can be applied to agricultural risks."

"A very large portion of people living in extreme poverty have their
livelihoods tied to some form of farming and 93% of those living in
extreme poverty are in countries that are politically fragile and/or
environmentally vulnerable and ill-equipped to help their people when
there is a natural disaster. Making matters worse, 94% of the economic
losses from natural disasters over 1990–2016 in low- and middle-income
countries were uninsured. This 'protection gap' is particularly acute
for agricultural insurance. This book provides a comprehensive and
thoughtful analysis for the challenges in risk transfer for agriculture
and promises to contribute to efforts in closing the protection gap. The
chapter on data is outstanding and very useful as we also identified
