    Перспективы в области продовольствия и сельского хозяйства: Тенденции и актуальные задачи - ОБЗОР 2017
    Цель настоящего доклада состоит в том, чтобы улучшить понимание характера задач, которые предстоит решать в области сельского хозяйства и продовольственных систем сейчас и на протяжении XXI века. Содержащийся в нём анализ 15 глобальных тенденций даёт понимание масштабов стоящих перед нами задач и действий, необходимых для их решения. Большинство этих тенденций тесно взаимосвязаны, и их совокупность определяет те 10 задач в области достижения продовольственной безопасности и питания для всех и об еспечения устойчивости сельского хозяйства. “Бизнес-как-обычно” не рассматривается в качестве варианта. Если мы хотим полностью реализовать потенциал продовольствия и сельского хозяйства в обеспечении надёжного и здорового будущего для всех людей и для всей планеты, необходимо будет осуществить крупные преобразования сельскохозяйственных систем, экономики сельских районов и систем рационального использования природных ресурсов.
