This international technical webinar is part of the series organized by the FAO elearning Academy, Agreenium (French training and research alliance for agriculture, food, environment and global health), UN-ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific), and Future Food Institute. This webinar is also part of the series 'Bridging the knowledge gap on the holistic risk management approach in developing countries', organized together with the Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM) and the Forum for Agricultural Risk Management in Development (FARM-D) - hosted by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
Building on the previous session, this webinar will further expand on the crucial role of capacity development for agricultural risk management. The event benefits from the key lessons drawn from the series of four e-learning courses on agricultural risk management (ARM) developed by PARM and FAO elearning Academy, in partnership with IFAD and NEPAD. The discussion will start with a first overview on the different tools and strategies available to manage risk in agriculture and how to select the most appropriate one based on the context and target groups. The exchange will continue with how different organizations and stakeholders work on strengthening their capacity, capitalizing on their experiences at the regional and global level.
