The primary target audience is government officials within developing countries interested in embarking on a systematic process of developing CCA and DRM plans for the agricultural sector. It is also targeted at officials who want to include insurance solutions as climate and/or DRM activities to develop a comprehensive risk management approach.
The secondary target group is development organizations at the national and international levels engaged in assisting the agricultural sectors in developing countries to design and strengthen their DRM frameworks or climate change adaptation plans. It can be used by practitioners, although several technical skills and competencies are required. Thus, insurance companies involved in raising awareness of risks and implementing insurance-related programmes may also find the document useful. Beyond the agricultural sectors, other sectors may also adapt the document to their specific needs, using the ICRM approach as a reference.
