Review and Analysis of Agricultural Natural Disaster Relief System
Asia-Pacific Information Platform on Agricultural Policy (AP).
Dr. Min-Hsien Yang describes recent climate change case of unstable quality and quantity of agricultural outputs. Given that the government implements the natural disaster relief system, the relief aid has been able to offer assistance to rehabilitation rather than compensate their income losses. Thus the natural disaster relief is not an effective system to secure or support farmers’ incomes under potential disaster exposures. Therefore, the resolution to secure farmers’ incomes from disaster losses should be delivered by agricultural insurances.
