Zimbabwe agriculture sector disaster risk assessment report

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This report presents an assessment of Zimbabwe’s agriculture sector disaster risk and management capacity. The findings indicate that Zimbabwe is highly exposed to agricultural risks and has limited capacity to manage risk at various levels. Specifically, the report shows that Zimbabwe loses approximately US$126 million each year due to production risks, with the most important agricultural risk being drought. 

The report recommends the need to adopt an integrated risk management strategy including (i) building resilience at the farm level; (ii) improving Government capacity to finance and deliver timely disaster response; and (iii) promoting risk transfer (insurance mechanisms) at the sovereign level as well as for farmers. This report was financed by the European Union (EU)–funded Africa Disaster Risk Financing (ADRF) Initiative, managed by GFDRR.
