Central American farmers at mercy of elements

Wednesday, November 7, 2018

Central America has been described by international organizations as one of the planet’s most vulnerable regions to the onslaught of climate change.

And yet, tools that help farmers mitigate weather shocks, such as agricultural insurance, are not widely available in the region, although important initiatives have been launched.

Compared to Mexico or countries in South America, Central America has made little progress in this area, according to the report Agricultural Insurance in the Americas, published two years ago by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture.
