08/07/2014 - How will global agriculture develop over the coming decade? The latest Agricultural Outlook from the OECD and UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) looks at trends in prices, production, demand as well as dietary habits and assesses the major policy challenges facing the sector.
A special focus on India – which has the highest number of food-insecure people in the world – looks at such issues as the country’s National Food Security Act, the largest right to food programme of its kind ever attempted.
The OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2014-2023 will be presented by OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría and FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva at a news conference at 11.30 a.m. Friday 11 July 2014 at FAO headquarters (Sheikd Zayed Media Centre), Viale delle Terme de Caracalla, Rome.
