In this brief note a few initial examples of the economic risk assessment for Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza are presented. The approach recognizes the microeconomic realities of poultry production and livelihoods, including the diversity of household production systems and the complexity of market incentives they face. The approach is divided into three components, each with an essential role to play in a pro-poor approach to HPAI risk reduction.
