This study was carried out on the request of WFP and OXFAM Pakistan to assess the viability of integrated risk management approaches for enhancing the resilience of small farmers in Punjab. It looked at the relevance of WFP-Oxfam’s global R4 Rural Resilience Initiative in the context of study areas and found the approach to be relevant.  In particular, strategies relating to risk reduction and risk transfer, if implemented correctly, can significantly augment small farmers’ capacities to withstand shocks. The study takes into consideration the various risks confronting smallholder farming systems and ways in which farmers cope with these risks. The study also attempts to map out relevant stakeholders, their key functions and programmes as further explained in the report.
