Les innovations technologiques et les progrès de l'agriculture digitale se poursuivent à un rythme élévé, améliorant l’efficacité de l’agriculture à travers le monde. Le taux d’adoption des nouvelles technologies reste cependant peu élevé chez les petits exploitants agricoles. Le faible développement de l’infrastructure des données et le manque de partenariats commerciaux empêchent en effet les organisations paysannes de tirer parti des débouchés commerciaux.

  1. Whole-family approach to agricultural market success

    This brief describes how Women in Business Development Incorporated (WIBDI), a non-profit organisation in Samoa, works with farming families to produce high-value products for local and global markets. Shifting away from a women-focused approach, WIBDI now uses an approach that involves the whole family, keeping all family members on board. It has also invested in digital applications and resources to increase the efficiency of operations, profile the producers and their products, and facilitate engagement with markets and customers.

  2. Sustainable agriculture: where are we on SDGs implementation?

    In September 2015 Heads of State and Government agreed to set the world on a path towards sustainable development through the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The information in this document was compiled as background reading material for the 54th Brussels Briefing on “Sustainable agriculture: where are we on SDGs implementation?”

  3. The next generation of farmers: successes and new opportunities

    The global population is on track to surpass 9 billion by 2050 and exceed 11 billion by the end of the century. The world’s 500 million smallholder farms produce around 80% of our food and it is they who will have to carry the burden of increasing food production by over 70%. The information in this document was compiled as background reading material for the 53rd Brussels Briefing on The next generation of farmers: successes and opportunities.

  4. Food safety: a critical part of the food system in Africa

    Food safety is linked, directly or indirectly, to the achievement of many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially those pertaining to ending hunger and poverty, and promoting good health and well-being. Food and nutritional security is realised only when essential elements of a healthy diet are safe to eat. The information in this document was compiled as background reading material for the 52nd Brussels Briefing on Food safety: a critical part of the food system in Africa.

  5. Agriculture as an engine of economic reconstruction and development in fragile countries

    It is important to establish that there is no universal definition of “fragility”, and periodic advances in the understanding of fragility have led to changes in the way that this issue is addressed by the international community. The information in this document was compiled as background reading material for the 51st Brussels Development Briefing on the topic of Agriculture as an engine of economic reconstruction and development in fragile countries.

  6. Growing food in the cities: Successes and new opportunities

    Towns and cities in the world’s developing countries are growing on an unprecedented scale. In 1960, the global urban population was 34% of the total; by 2014 54% of the total and growing. By 2050, the proportion living in urban areas is expected to reach 66% (UNDESA). Sub-Saharan Africa’s annual urban growth rate is 3.6%, almost double the world average. The information in this document was compiled as background reading material for the 50th Brussels Development Briefing on Growing food in the cities: Successes and new opportunities.

  7. Strengthening rural livelihoods in the face of rapid urbanisation in Africa

    Globalization and urbanisation have transformed economies and social systems in countries around the world in the past decades. The information in this document was compiled as background reading material for the 48th Brussels Development Briefing on Strengthening rural livelihoods in the face of rapid urbanisation in Africa co-organised by CTA, BMZ/GIZ, ACP Secretariat, European Commission (DG DEVCO) and Concord.
