Agricultural risks in Senegal are linked to climatic stresses, pest and diseases outbreak, bushfires, and price volatility. These make information access and availability critical in improving agricultural livelihoods.
As part of efforts to integrate risk management knowledge into developing countries’ policy agenda, IFAD/PARM developed 8-series policy brief on IS-ARM. This policy brief presents key highlights for the context of Senegal. It provides a snapshot of the existing information systems and information sources, weighs the strengths and weaknesses, and provides recommendations for further improvement.
