Naranjo Barrantes, María Angélica. 2015. “Risk management in agriculture: Ongoing studies with coffee farmers in Costa Rica affected by coffee leaf rust.”
The Economics and Environment for Development Research Program (EEfD) at CATIE is leading a series of studies on decision-making under risk. We address the issue of adaptation to climate change from the perspective of how farmers’ attitudes towards risk, affect the adoption of different adaptation strategies, including crop insurance demand, and in the light of the recent coffee rust epidemic in Central America.
