WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF BRAZILIAN AGRICULTURE?
Agriculture has undergone deeper and deeper economic, cultural, social, technological, environmental and trade changes. Such changes have substantially impacted the rural world, and analyzing the main signs and trends that point to those changes is essential to define performance strategies so that we can live in a healthier and more equitable and prosperous planet.
Increased world demand for water, foods, fibers and energy is one of the main challenges for governments and societies. In recent years, this demand has intensified due to factors such as population growth; higher longevity; intense urbanization; rise in the purchasing power of part of the world population, and changes in consumer behavior. In light of the above, establishing a more sustainable development is vital.
The international efforts to face these challenges include the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which have been established by United Nations and whose agenda has centered around food and nutrition. And Brazil is not only prepared to play a leading role in this process, but also to significantly collaborate towards the achievement of such goals.
Here you will find one of the studies coordinated by Embrapa's Strategic Intelligence System (Agropensa) "Vision: the Future of Brazilian Agriculture" as well as the views of important leaders from different production sectors concerning the main challenges for the sustainability of agriculture and food: "Outlooks for 2030".
The competitive and sustainable success agriculture has reached in the last few decades needs to be intensified. Its greatest strength lies in the diversity, plurality and cultural, socioeconomic and environmental heterogeneity of the country. The analyses and views you will find here contribute to public and private decision-making, with the aim of advancing towards continuous development in Brazil.
