Riesgo Agropecuario: Incidencia Económica e Innovaciones para su mitigación. El caso de Argentina
[Agricultural Risk Managment: Economic Incidence and Mitigation Innovations. The Case of Argentina]
The aim of this paper is to summarise a variety of dimensions of agricultural risk in Argentina and to propose different lines of research related to an integrated risk management framework at the macro and micro levels. First, we analyse the incidence of the primary sector in the Argentinean economy, to have one first dimension of the exposure to external shocks. Then, we present some major risks that affect small agricultural producers at a micro level. Finally, we introduce some financial innovations that reduce climate and price risk exposure, such as weather derivatives and index-based insurances.
