The Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM), is an outcome of the G8 and G20 discussions on food security and agricultural growth
PARM is a four year multi-donor partnership between the European Commission (EC), the French Development Agency (AFD), the Italian Development Cooperation (DGCS), and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and the development partners to make risk management an integral part of policy planning and implementation in the agricultural sector.
The Platform plays the role of facilitator in bundling the know-how of participating donors for the development of methodologies for risk analysis and the adoption of risk management strategies, integrating risk management instruments and approaches in public policies, private sector practices and agricultural investment programmes.
The overall objective of PARM is to contribute to sustainable agricultural growth, reduce food insecurity, and improve livelihoods of rural and poor farming households in developing countries.
