Project General Description

The study of risk management and the establishment of an agricultural insurance and microinsurance system in Tunisia is a project led by the Ministry of Agriculture, which benefits from the support of the African Development Bank. The project consists of a single component, namely the acquisition of the services of a consulting firm to carry out the study. The selected firm will initially carry out a detailed diagnosis of the risks related to the agricultural sector for the main production sectors (climate risks, plant and animal disease risks, commercial risks, etc.), analyze the importance of these risks and evaluate the effectiveness of the instruments put in place to deal with these risks. Finally, it will make a comparative analysis between practices in Tunisia and those developed in other countries in the field of agricultural risk management. In a second step, the consultant will propose insurance options according to a participative and partnership approach according to the risks to be insured and the beneficiaries of the insurance services.

Project Objectives

The objective of this study is to provide Tunisia with a risk management system that will allow it to preserve its agricultural sector against hazards and ensure its sustainable development.


The main beneficiary of the project is the Government of the Republic of Tunisia through its Ministry of Agriculture.
