AGRICULTURE AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT
MODERNIZATION OF AGRICULTURE SERVICES IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN IMPROVES PRODUCTIVITY AND PRESERVES THE ENVIRONMENT.
To promote the inclusive development of agriculture and sustainable use of natural resources it is necessary to deal with the three challenges confronted by the LAC region: (i) the low and heterogeneous agricultural productivity, which affects its competitiveness; (ii) the reduced reach of the sector’s growth benefits among rural peoples, which affects its social inclusion capability; and (iii) the vulnerability of natural resources to climate change, which affects its environmental sustainability in the long run.In this regard, we support countries in their efforts to have: (i) an agricultural sector with high productivity, whereby climate impacts are managed, demonstrating an overcoming of the competitiveness challenge; (ii) rural families’ incomes from the sector sustainably growing over time, demonstrating an overcoming of the social inclusion challenge; and (iii) natural resources used sustainably, whereby the carbon footprint is low, demonstrating an overcoming of the environmental sustainability challenge.
