DATA 4 AGRICULTURE

Description

Agriculture is an engine of growth for households and for countries alike, as a source of employment and a key driver for food security. But the flip side to its capacity to feed people, bolster the economy, and protect the planet are the many challenges that arise when the industry is not carefully and sustainably managed — farming and livestock cultivation affect land degradation, water use or misuse, pollution from pesticides, greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change. Climate change patterns, as well as economic and market forces, can hinder food production, quality, and sales, exacerbating hunger, malnutrition, and poverty for many vulnerable communities. Accurate data are needed to provide guidance to navigate these complex, and deeply interrelated factors.
