Agricultural Policy Review of India
Development, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and | July 2018
The report highlights both the notable progress made by the country’s agricultural sector over the past two decades and the important challenges now confronting the sector: declining but still persistent food insecurity and nutrition deficiencies, large numbers of small and resource poor farms, increasing water scarcity, low productivity growth, and the uncertain impacts of climate change. In this context, the report highlights the opportunity for policymakers to rebalance their efforts moving away from complex, volatile and often competing market interventions in favour of measures that target the nutrition needs of the poor and the productive possibilities of farmers and rural residents more generally.
