The year 2017-2018 represents a crucial year for PARM as it approaches the completion of its first phase.
The 2017 Annual Report was published on 1st June 2018. The report confirms that the Platform is increasingly being recognized as the main global reference point for methodology, policy process and delivery of solutions for Agricultural Risk Management (ARM).
Notably, the year 2017 was very fulfilling as PARM received recognition in several strategic documents of the G20, G7 and the United Nations SDGs Partnership Exchange. It also finalized the agreement with World Bank to hand over the FARMD knowledge platform.
At the country level, PARM developed new locally adapted ARM tools such as the Plant Health Monitoring and Control in Uganda and Warehouse Receipts and Future Contracts in Niger.
It also dialogue with stakeholders on the integration of the tools into projects and programmes implementation in the respective countries.
