Perspectives agricoles de L'OCDE et de la FAO 2016-2025
OECD/Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Cette douzième édition conjointe des Perspectives Agricoles de l’OCDE et de la FAO présente des projections à l’horizon 2025 pour les principaux produits agricoles, les biocarburants et le poisson. Le rapport 2016 comprend un chapitre spécial sur les perspectives et les défis auxquels l’Afrique subsaharienne sera confrontée. Sur la période de dix ans couverte par les Perspectives, un ralentissement de la croissance de la demande sera compensé par des gains d’efficacité de production, impliquant des prix réels des produits agricoles relativement stables. Toutefois, les incertitudes des marchés et des politiques donnent lieu à un risque de volatilité résurgente. Les projections pour l’agriculture en Afrique subsaharienne indiquent une augmentation des disponibilités alimentaires, ce qui favorisera une diminution de l’incidence de la malnutrition. Les perspectives du secteur pourraient être bien meilleures si les politiques menées dans la région étaient plus stables, si des investissements stratégiques publics et privés étaient consentis, notamment dans les infrastructures, et si des activités de recherche et de vulgarisation adaptées étaient menées.
