Executive summary

This report covers OECD countries and a range of emerging economies that account for the majority of global agricultural value added. These 50 countries differ in terms of the importance of agriculture in their economies, the structure and orientation of the sector, and the natural resource endowment on which agricultural production relies. To varying degrees, these countries all face the same opportunities and challenges: responding to growing demand for food and non-food uses of agricultural commodities; using available land, water and biodiversity resources more sustainably; adapting to and mitigating the effects of climate change; and coping with often unpredictable supply, demand and policy shocks.
