Sustainable agriculture & food supply chains

Food security and environmental sustainability are two key policy objectives for the agricultural sector. Ministers and senior policy makers met last week during an OECD-organised high-level panel at the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture to discuss how we can ‘square the circle’ to achieve sustainable agri-food supply chains that are accessible to all.
