This review assesses the performance of Colombian agriculture over the last two decades, evaluates Colombian agricultural policy reforms and provides recommendations to address key challenges in the future. The evaluation is based on the approach that agriculture policy should be evidence-based and carefully designed and implemented to support productivity, competitiveness and sustainability, while avoiding unnecessary distortions to production decisions and to trade. The report includes a special chapter focusing on agricultural innovation.

The agricultural innovation system in Colombia

This chapter provides an overview of the main actors in the Colombian Agricultural Innovation System and their roles in creating the institutional framework to spur innovation, including institutions that ensure the governance of the system. The chapter also presents the framework developed at OECD to analyse the role of the government in fostering innovation in the food and agricultural sector. In Colombia, there is a diversity of institutions involved in innovation, with different mechanisms for defining priorities and monitoring activities. The chapter thus identifies the key challenges in terms of governance and co‐ordination.
