Feasibility study for investment: information systems for agricultural risk management in Liberia

Abstract:

The objective of the study is to examine the different types of information relevant for managing weather, pest and disease and market/financial information in Liberia. It also outlines recommendations and a corresponding investment plan for early warning and information system(s) to help meso-level operators in agriculture and smallholder farmers to better manage risks. A specific focus of the study is to ensure that information is available and accessible in a timely manner for meso-level actors in the agricultural value chain. The use of new technologies (mobile services, e-bulletins accessible by mobile phone) and traditional channels (community radios) are some possible information channels. The study analysis identifies possible solutions to improve these channels for information dissemination and concludes with an investment plan.
