This paper reviews the scientific literature on the impacts of climate change on yield variance and investigates their implications for the demand of crop insurance and effectiveness of different farm strategies and policy measures using crop farm data in Australia, Canada and Spain.
Recent experience of highly turbulent markets has renewed interest in quantitative assessment of price volatility by stochastic simulations using the AGLINK-COSIMO model. Measuring the contribution of correlation of yield shocks to price volatility, this paper shows that correlation effects account for a significant portion of price volatility for coarse grains and wheat.

Report on Impacts of Phosphorus-based nutrients management on the quality of surface water resources
Increased productivity, green-growth and more open markets will be essential if the food and nutrition requirements of future generations are to be met. Governments should also renounce trade-distorting practices and create an enabling environment for a thriving and sustainable agriculture underpinned by improved productivity, said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría.
Governments looking to boost their fisheries sector should review their policies to create incentives for economically and environmentally sustainable fisheries, according to a new OECD report.
Governments looking to boost their fish sector should consider rights-based management systems that can create incentives for stakeholders and lead to economically and environmentally sustainable fisheries, according to this report.
Food commodity prices are anticipated to remain on a higher plateau over the next decade, underpinned by firm demand but a slowing growth in global production, according to the latest OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2012-2021.
This report monitors and evaluates fisheries policies in OECD member and non-member economies, including Brazil, China, India, Indonesia and South Africa.
This inter-agency report to the Mexican G20 Presidency examines practical actions that could be undertaken to sustainably improve agricultural productivity growth, in particular on small family farms.
