The objective of this session is to present and discuss the results of research that was carried out in various European countries, taking such a holistic approach to the analysis of risk and risk management. The results of these studies will be presented and discussed with the goal to derive implications for risk management research and for the design of policy measures. One common feature of these studies is the farm household perspective, whereby a farming system is seen as consisting of several subsystems – the technical, human, economic, goals and norms and management subsystems – operating in a series of suprasystems such as the macro-economic, the policy and the social suprasystem. Hence, during this session, we will take a step back by looking at farm households and trying to answer questions such as how do they perceive risk, which risks do they perceive, how do they manage risks, which interactions occur between risk management and other farm household management activities. Each individual study relates its main conclusion to the dominant research and policy approaches to find compliance and/or discrepancies.
A first series of studies deals with the farmers’ willingness and capacity to manage risks and with farmers’ conceptions of risk and risk management. These studies present important implications on how farmers conceptualize risk and on interactions between the sources of risk. Further, this series of studies analyzes potential and actual risk management decisions implemented by farm households in various European countries. A second series of studies deals with interactions between farm household risk management decisions. They show that risk management at the farm level is very much dependent on decisions and activities at the household level. This implies that analyses at the farm level will lead to unanticipated responses by farm households.
