It is planned to establish an agricultural insurance fund in Azerbaijan in 2018, according to the Strategic Road Map for the manufacture and processing of agricultural products in the country published in Azerbaijan’s official press.

“Azerbaijan’s Financial Markets Supervision Chamber and the country’s Ministry of Agriculture with the participation of private insurance companies will study the possibility of creating an insurance fund to expand the coverage of agricultural insurance,” the document noted.

“International experience in this area will be studied, and reports prepared, which will include an analysis of the potential impact the fund’s creation may have on insurance of producers and development of the agriculture sphere as a whole,” said the document.

Changes to the existing legislation related to agricultural insurance in Azerbaijan will also be proposed, according to the document.
