The Commission Communication of 2005 on risk and crisis management in agriculture looks at possible new measures to help farmers in the European Union manage risk and to provide an improved response to crises in the agricultural sector. Three options that refer to agricultural insurance, mutual funds and an income crisis tool are presented for discussion. In addition, specific training could also help farmers make better use of risk management instruments.
The Communication is accompanied by a Commission staff working document that describes the risks and crises agriculture is subject to and the management measures that currently exist.
