MetadataShow full item record
The study aims to establish the relationships between production and climate indicators in order to design a financial weather instrument in order to reduce the volatility of the financial performance of farmers in the region of Dobruja. For this purpose, a simulated weather derivative was designed and approbated making the relevant assumptions and constraints to mitigate the negative effects of changes in the levels of precipitation, the drought frequency, and the increasing climatic amplitudes on cereal crops. Its effectiveness is assessed taking into account the varying temperature and production and business performance of the agricultural producers. Last but not least, the study presents a critical review of the conditions required for the operation of this type of financial market in our country.
