This is the 14th Outlook that we have produced jointly with the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation: our long-standing collaboration has ensured that we have stayed at the leading edge of the challenges facing the agricultural sector. The publication projects production and prices of all major agricultural products.

Water is one of the world’s most precious resources. And today, cities, farmers, industries, energy suppliers, and ecosystems are increasingly competing for their daily water needs. As a result, the costs of inadequate water management are becoming higher and higher. And not just financially – but also in terms of lost opportunities, compromised health and environmental damage.
How can government policies move towards increasing agricultural innovation and improving productivity? This OECD conference shared case studies and ideas from Europe, China, United States, India, Africa, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.
This meeting explored the role of policy in addressing issues related to climate change, agriculture and land use, both in the context of GHG mitigation and of farmer adaptation to climate change.
