This publication is the result of a collaborative process through a workshop held at the IFAD headquarters on the 25 October 2017. The objective of the publication is to define the key pillars for successful implementation of ARM initiatives and to present promising case studies to promote learning and sharing among practitioners.

Specifically, the publication aims at formalizing lessons learned, to identify and improve strategies to cope with agricultural risks, and share those lessons among agriculture risk management (ARM) practitioners. It is based on the analysis of 10 case studies selected by a Technical Committee after an open call for proposals.
