This feasibility study presents an investment programme to develop the capacity of Ethiopian smallholder farmers to assess, prioritize and manage agricultural risks in all form. It is part of activities agreed between PARM and the Government of Ethiopia (GOE) to promote the mainstreaming of Agricultural Risk Management (ARM) into Ethiopian agricultural sector programmes. The study draws on a review of relevant legal, regulatory and policy documents as well as the frameworks for existing training activities in Ethiopia. It also relies on information gathered during consultations with relevant stakeholders, including policymakers in the Ministries of Agriculture and Education, as well as field visits to the ATVETs (Holeta ATVET and Alage ATVET) and to the Berek Woreda Agricultural Bureau and the FTC at Sendafa in the Oromia Region. A key outcome of the report is the design of a CD for ARM action plan with tentative funding and programme management arrangement for implementation.
