International Workshop on Agrometeorological Risk Management:

  • – Challenges and Opportunities
  • 25-27 October 2006, New Delhi, India
  • Objectives
  • ·To identify farmers'coping strategies with risks in different regions of the world, e.g. extreme climatic events (droughts, floods, cyclones, frosts and high winds etc.);
  • To help Reduce vulnerability of different agro-ecosystems to weather and climate related risks and uncertainties, access to technological advances (particularly in developing countries);
  • To review theopportunities for farmers to mitigate risks and uncertainties in different parts of the world, e.g. with structural measures (irrigation, water harvesting, microclimate management and manipulation and other preparedness strategies) and non-structural measures (seasonal climate forecasts, improved application of medium-range weather forecasts).
  • To provide on-farm examples of appropriate coping strategies for minimizing agrometeorological risks and uncertainties for sustainable agriculture.
  • To review, through appropriate case studies, the use of crop insurance strategies and schemes to reduce the vulnerability of the farming communities to agrometeorological risks;
  • To discuss and recommend suitable policy options, such as agrometeorological services for managing risks in different parts of the world.
