From the appointment of the Secretariat in September 2014 up to the closing in June 2019, PARM’s participatory agricultural risk management (ARM) engagement process has been successfully implemented in 8 sub-Saharan African countries: Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Liberia, Niger, Senegal, Uganda, and Zambia. The process has resulted in the identification of priority risks in these countries and the generation of evidence to improve perceptions on risks. It has also led to a package of tools for investment in ARM in line with Governments and development partners’ priorities.
In terms of knowledge on ARM, the PARM initiative has generated, in only 5 years, over 100 resources and knowledge products on agricultural risks and management. It has also increased awareness, strengthened capacities and knowledge on ARM through 15 dissemination and policy dialogue workshops, 17 capacity development seminars and 6 knowledge-sharing events.
