In this paper, we highlight the need for systematic risk management and outline a systematic agricultural risk. Indeed, the risk (uninsured) linked to instability reduces production and investment (and therefore long-term production) compared to a "risk-free" situation.

With a constant demand, which is the case in agriculture where demand is assumed to be inelastic, i.e. low price sensitivity, a lower production will result in higher prices.
