Establishment and Application of Assessment Indicator System of Agricultural Catastrophe Vulnerability

To give play to the role of agricultural catastrophe risk fund in spreading agricultural catastrophe risk, we select natural conditions, economic status, social status, as the external vulnerability assessment indicators; select commodity rate of agricultural products, substitutability of agricultural products, the extent of agricultural products being related to the national economy and the people's livelihood, as the internal vulnerability assessment indicators. We assign weight to indicators using analytic Hierarchy Process, and establish assessment indicator system of agricultural catastrophe vulnerability, to analyze the compensation for losses of different agricultural products arising from agricultural catastrophe in different regions. And we take the case of rice in Sichuan Province, to demonstrate the role this indicator system.
