Abstract: 2005 saw the start of a debate, promoted by the European Commission (EC), to decide whether and how the EU should intervene to provide farmers and stockbreeders with a safety net in case of crises, disasters and catastrophes (CDCs). The article reviews national policies and reflects on the three basic options considered by the EC (farm insurance, stabilisation funds and ad hoc aids in case of CDCs). We find that both the perception of risks and the actual risk of producers in the EU differ considerably. The political options of each MS do not converge into a common pattern either. The EU has regulated national aids and encourages the MS to assign modulation funds to co-financing risk management instruments. Except in stock-breeding, no European policy is to be expected in the sphere of risks and crises, disasters and catastrophes.
