Abstract

This chapter reviews how EU member states finance the direct and consequential losses from livestock epidemics, focusing on state support (national and European) and risk transfer by means of private insurance schemes. First, a review of the compensation scheme per EU member state for direct losses is provided. Second, existing insurance schemes per EU member state are elaborated upon. Finally, the need for and feasibility of developing "a European system" is discussed.
