Description

Livestock and aquaculture insurance have received less attention than crop insurance in risk management strategies being considered in recent years. This publication is intended as a contribution to redressing this imbalance. It briefly introduces the role of insurance as a risk management mechanism in livestock and aquaculture enterprises. It aims at setting the scene, and explores with the reader some of the complexities involved in this financial mechanism for risk sharing. In doing so, it discusses the applicability of insurance to managing those risks that are beyond the immediate control of the farm manager and that result in animal and fish mortality.
