Government Support to Agricultural Insurance: Challenges and Options for Developing Countries
Government Support to Agricultural Insurance: Challenges and Options for Developing Countries
World Bank Publications 2010 | 224 | ISBN: 0821382179 | PDF | 3
Governments in developing countries have been increasingly involved in the support of commercial agricultural insurance programs in recent years. In their attempt to design and implement agricultural insurance, many governments in developing countries have sought technical assistance from the international community and particularly from the World Bank. World Bank is among the few international financial organizations having a fully dedicated insurance team with agricultural insurance experts, and the agricultural insurance team currently provides technical assistance in about 20 countries. One of the recurrent requests from the governments is about the international experience with agricultural insurance, not only in developed countries where in some cases agricultural insurance has been offered for more than a century, but also in middle- and low-income countries. They are particularly interested in the experience of public support to agricultural insurance, including technical, operational, financial and institutional aspects. The book aims to inform and update the public and private decision makers involved in the promotion of agricultural insurance about the recent developments in agricultural insurance, with a particular focus on middle- and low-income countries. It provides the decision maker with a framework for the development of agricultural insurance based on an analytical review of the rationale of public intervention in agricultural insurance and a detailed comparative analysis of agricultural insurance programs with and without public support. This analysis is based on a survey conducted by the World Bank s agricultural insurance team in 2008 in 65 developed and developing countries. It offers policymakers a review of public support in agricultural insurance in light of international experience and makes recommendations for the development of sustainable, affordable and cost-effective agricultural insurance programs. ...

Agricultural waste, which includes both natural (organic) and non-natural wastes, is a general term used to describe waste produced on a farm through various farming activities. These activities can include but are not limited to dairy farming, horticulture, seed growing, livestock breeding, grazing land, market gardens, nursery plots, and even woodlands. Agricultural and food industry residues, refuse and wastes constitute a significant proportion of world wide agricultural productivity. It has variously been estimated that these wastes can account for over 30 per cent of world wide agricultural productivity. The boundaries to accommodate agricultural waste derived from animal agriculture and farming activities are identified in this book.

Enhancing Agricultural Innovation: How to Go Beyond the Strengthening of Research Systems
Publisher: World Bank Publications | 2006-10-15 | ISBN: 0821367412 | PDF | 184 pages | 6.00 MB

Knowledge intensiveness has featured prominently in most strategies to promote agricultural development. In the past strengthened research systems may have increased the supply of new knowledge and technologies, but that has not necessarily translated into enhanced agricultural growth. Knowledge converts into products and services through an innovation system -- a network of organizations, enterprises and individuals focusing on bringing new knowledge into economic use, together with the institutions and policies that enable a well-functioning network. This book assesses the usefulness of the innovation systems concept in guiding investments to support knowledge intensive, sustainable agricultural development for developing countries and its collaborators.

Profiting from the Plains: The Great Northern Railway and Corporate Development of the American West

2003 | 228 | ISBN: 0295983485 | PDF | 2 Mb

"Profiting from the Plains" looks at two inextricably linked historical movements in the United States: the westward expansion of the great Northern Railway and the agricultural development of the northern plains. Claire Strom explores the persistent, idiosyncratic attempts by the Great Northern to boost agricultural production along its rail routes from St. Paul to Seattle between 1878 and 1917. Lacking a federal land grant, the Great Northern could not make money through land sales like other railways. It had to rely on haulage to make a profit, and the greatest potential for increasing haulage lay in farming. The energetic and charismatic owner of the Great Northern Railway, James J. Hill, spearheaded most of the initiatives undertaken by his corporation to boost agricultural production. He tried, often unsuccessfully, to persuade farmers of the profitability of his methods, which were largely based on his personal farming experience. When Hill's initial efforts to increase haulage failed, he shifted his focus to working with outside agencies and institutions, often providing them with the funding to pursue projects he hoped would profit his railroad. At the time, state and federal agencies were also promoting agricultural development through irrigation, conservation, and dryland farming, but their agendas often clashed with those of the Great Northern Railway. Because Hill failed to grasp the extent to which politicians' goals differed from those of the railroad, his use of federal expertise to promote agricultural change often backfired. But despite these obstacles, the railroad magnate ironically remained among the last defenders of the small-scale farmer modelled on Jeffersonian idealism. This fascinating story of railroad politics and development ties into themes of corporate and federal sponsorship, which are increasingly recognized as fundamental to western history. As the first scholarly examination of James J. Hill's agricultural enterprises, "Profiting from the Plains" makes an important contribution to the biography of the popular and controversial Hill, as well as to western and environmental history. Claire Strom is assistant professor of history, North Dakota State University, Fargo....
