The Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) is integrated into many global political frameworks for disaster risk reduction, climate change mitigation and adaptation, development financing, and in the framework of the G20 and G7.
This paper explores the links between PARM and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It reveals that PARM directly or indirectly contributes to several SDGs, in particular, the SDGs 1, 2, and 13, relating to poverty, hunger and climate change. Moreover, the structure and operating model of PARM, focusing on policy integration, capacity building and partnerships, as well as the holistic approach to agricultural risk management (ARM) that it promotes, are in line with the objectives to conduct better-coordinated actions for sustainable development across the world, thus connecting the dots for better investment for future.
