Outils de résilience face à la volatilité des revenus agricoles

Abstract : The BARBUSIAUX rapport (2000) sets the foundations of the current system of agricultural risks management in clearly defining three levels of risk management: the first, falling under the realm of the farmer’s individual responsibility, the second, under the realm of mutualisation - namely through a system of private insurance - and the third, under the realm of national solidarity. Following the liberalization of markets for agricultural goods, the European farmers are increasingly confronted with price volatility affecting their revenue; against which few solutions have yet been developed. The object of this memoire is to study the role that French insurance could play in the development of a risk management system taking into account price risk. Relying on Mr. Babusiaux’s approach, two solutions are analyzed: an insurance scheme to cover agricultural revenue and a plan for professional savings. The functioning of those tools is studied and their efficiency tried, in order to evaluate their pertinence. Beyond the technical aspect of covering price risks, it seems necessary to ponder the future of such tools and the conditions of their diffusion. The collaboration with the public systems of risk management and the rigorous monitoring of regulatory restrictions appear to be vital in this area.
