The Platform for Agricultural Risk Management (PARM), a G8-G20 initiative hosted by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), is a multi-donor partnership. The Platform works in strategic partnership with NEPAD / CAADP in African countries to mainstream agricultural risk management into the national agricultural policy and investment plans (www.p4arm.org). This study assesses Information Systems for Agricultural Risk Management (IS-ARM) in seven African countries (Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal, and Uganda) using a common methodology. The information in this study aims to contribute to define the priorities, strategies and investment plans for information systems in seven African countries, and to learn cross country lessons about the strength and weaknesses of Agricultural Risk Management Information Systems in Africa. This publication includes the cross country comparison report, and the executive summaries and policy briefs.
