The presence of such risks underlies a potential demand for mechanism to soften the blow from adverse economic shocks.

The presence of such risks underlies a potential demand for mechanism to soften the blow from adverse economic shocks. Such a protective infrastructure is referred to in this paper as "country insurance." Protective measures that countries can take themselves ("self-insurance") include sound economic policies, robust financial structures, and adequate reserve coverage. Beyond self-insurance, countries have also established regional arrangements that pool risks while, at the multilateral level, the IMF plays a central role through the temporary provision of its resources when shocks create balance of payments difficulties for a member, and through the policy advice it provides under surveillance. The Occasional paper focuses on what countries can do on their own -- that is, on the role of domestic policies -- with respect to country insurance."--Preface."@en ;
