Application of Weather Derivatives in Multi-Period Risk Management


  • Vedenov, Dmitry V.
  • Sanchez, Leonardo


This work is a first attempt to analyze the effect of weather derivative availability on the risk management strategies in a multi-period setting, when crop activities take place twice a year. Rice production in Ecuador is used as a case study. Numerical solutions show farmers improve their well-being by reducing their risk exposure.
