    Promouvoir la croissance verte en agriculture - Rôle de la formation, du conseil et de la vulgarisation

    L’investissement dans les connaissances pour favoriser l'adoption de pratiques respectueuses de l'environnement est un facteur déterminant des processus d’innovation dans le secteur de l’agriculture mais l’impact et le coût des initiatives existantes ont été peu évalués malgré une modification radicale de l'orientation, de l’organisation et des modes d’intervention. Ce rapport étudie le rôle, les performances et l'impact des initiatives relatives aux services de conseil agricole, à la formation et à la vulgarisation prises dans les pays de l’OCDE pour favoriser la croissance verte dans l'agriculture. Le rapport s’appuie sur une série d’études de cas pour examiner de nombreuses questions de méthode et les avantages associés à différents types de prestataires, et il identifie les pratiques de gestion agricole durable les plus performantes.

    Water Resources Governance in Brazil

    Water is abundant in Brazil, but unevenly distributed across regions and users. Remarkable progress to reform the sector has been achieved since the 1997 National Water Law, but economic, climate and urbanisation trends generate threats that may jeopardize national growth and development. The consequences are particularly acute in regions where tensions across water users already exist or are likely to grow. The report is the result of a policy dialogue with more than 100 stakeholders at different levels in Brazil. It assesses the performance of Brazil’s water governance and suggests policy recommendations for strengthening the co-ordination between federal and state water policies and for setting up more robust water allocation regimes that can better cope with future risks. The report concludes with an action plan, which suggests concrete milestones and champion institutions to implement those recommendations.

    Innovation, Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability in Australia

    Australia’s agriculture and food industries are well placed to contribute to the economy’s future growth given the robust prospects of global food demand and the continuing high international competitiveness of these sectors. There are, however, important challenges that call for new ways to exploit agricultural resources and human capital. The decade-long decline in agricultural productivity growth needs to be overcome, coupled with the need to accommodate uncertainties about the impacts of climate change and to respond to societal demands in the areas of sustainable development and animal welfare. The agro-food sector also needs to absorb exchange-rate and cost pressures created by the mining boom. To tap additional opportunities of the higher value food segments, Australian agri-businesses need new knowledge and capabilities to seize demand signals and value opportunities, particularly from more affluent consumers in Asian markets.
