Building the resilience of Turkey’s agricultural sector to droughts

Morvarid Bagherzadeh and Makiko Shigemitsu

No 167, OECD Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Papers from OECD Publishing

Abstract: Turkey is exposed to multiple natural hazard-induced disasters (NHID) and has considerable experience in managing the associated risks. Drought, in particular, has had significant impacts on the country’s agricultural sector, and the frequency of droughts is expected to increase due to climate change. Existing governance and policy frameworks seek to ensure that the agricultural sector is prepared for, and able to respond to, adverse events as they occur. While these mechanisms contribute to improved resilience, further opportunities exist to strengthen policy processes, in particular by increasing farmer and private sector participation.
