Professor Smith has more than 18 years experience in providing econometric, actuarial, and statistical analysis of crop insurance programs for policy makers, agro-insurance providers, and agricultural producers. He has more than 15 years experience in designing and delivering award winning education programs for agricultural producers, agri-businesses, insurance providers and policy makers. Dr. Smith is qualified as an actuarial expert and an agricultural economist. He is a nationally and internationally recognized expert on agricultural insurance policy, domestic agricultural policy, and agricultural trade policy issues. He has carried out award winning research on the effects of crop insurance on farm-level production decisions that affect the environment. His book, The Economics of Crop Insurance and Disaster Programs, (co-authored with Barry Goodwin) is acknowledged as the most comprehensive analysis of crop insurance policy and history in the United States. Dr. Smith teaches courses that involve risk management at Montana State University and annually presents 15 to 20 programs on agricultural insurance and policy issues for farmers, policy makers, and agri-business executives. He has also worked closely with several American Indian communities to develop and deliver culturally relevant agro-insurance curriculums.

Goals for the Institute

Developing Countries:
To develop sustainable agricultural risk management programs for developing countries that result in economic stability and new sources of “risk capital” for their agriculture sectors.

Developed Countries:
To provide a training, succession planning, and “analytical research capability” environment for developed country governments and private companies engaged or expanding their work in agricultural risk management.
