Launch of the OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook launch in Rome, 4 July 2016


27/06/2016 - The OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2016-2025 analyses agriculture production trends over the next decade, with detailed supply, demand, trade and price estimates of major agricultural commodities for 41 countries and 12 geographical regions.


It examines how trade has an increasing role in global food security as food supply and demand become more geographically separated, with exports of many key commodities notably concentrated in a few countries. The report also looks at how farming and the food chain need to adapt to and mitigate climate change.


A special chapter in this year’s report focuses on challenges facing sub-Saharan Africa and its strategic priorities in feeding a fast-growing and rapidly-urbanizing population.


The OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría and FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva will present the report during a media briefing at FAO Headquarters in Rome starting at 11:00 a.m.


Journalists wishing to attend should contact the FAO Media Relations Office.
