Description

Book release

EMBRAPA and IICA have made available to the countries the Guide on Good agricultural practices for a more resilient agriculture: guidelines for producers and governments. The aim of this publication is the following:

 

  • To promote an agriculture sector with production systems that take into account the natural environment, which meet the demand for food required by a growing world population, and where risks are faced in an integrated manner.
  • To provide a set of indicators that contribute to knowledge of the issue and to the drafting of policies and strategies for GAP, and which establish the methodological bases to continue to update these indicators.
