FARMD is pleased to invite you to attend the webinar Methodological Guidance on Agricultural Risk Assessment for Practitioners presented by World Bank Senior Economist Vikas Choudhary.

Senior Economist Vikas Choudhary will discuss and answer questions about the World Bank's Agricultural Risk Management Team's (ARMT) latest publication Agricultural Sector Risk Assessment: Methodological Guidance for Practitioners. The new report contains practical guidance on holistic risk management and provides a stepwise approach to conducting risk assessments. The guidance is geared toward development practitioners working in the agricultural sector in developing countries.

Incorporating the lessons learned from assisting countries in mainstreaming risk management practices into mid-term development strategies and investments, Mr. Choudhary will share ARMT's experience conducting assessments in more than 20 countries. Over time, the methodologies and tools have been refined, but the focus remains on approaching risks and risk management through an integrated perspective. 

Webex webinar to be held Tuesday, March 1 from 9:00 am EDT to 10:30 am EDT.
