The OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2020-2029 is a collaborative effort of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation Development (OECD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, incorporating expertise from collaborating member countries and international commodity organisations. It provides market projections for national, regional and global supply and demand of major agricultural commodities, biofuel and fish.

During the preparation of the OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2020-2029, the exact effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on agricultural markets were still largely unknown and they were therefore not incorporated in the baseline projections. Nevertheless, the Outlook aims to outline the channels of transmission of COVID-19 impacts on the various food and agriculture sectors.

The COVID-19 pandemic is placing unprecedented pressure on global agricultural and food supply chains. As a result, we have witnessed bottlenecks in input industries, agriculture production, food processing, transport and logistics, as well as huge shifts in demand for food and food services. Moreover, countries are implementing measures to address widespread health risks, leading to a dramatic economic contraction that is affecting farmers, workers, and consumers around the world. The challenge for governments is to create a balanced package of policies that address immediate needs and create conditions for the sector to “build back better”. Policy makers faced with the uncertainties generated by this unexpected crisis need access to information and analysis to inform their decisions.
