OECD Expert Briefing: Agricultural Outlook 2016


Join us for a presentation of the new OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2016-2025, with Jonathan Brooks, Head of the OECD Agro-food Trade and Markets Division, who will present the report's findings live by video from OECD headquarters.

The annual Outlook is a collaborative effort of the OECD and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It provides an assessment of medium-term prospects of national, regional and global agricultural commodity markets, and gives supply, demand, trade and price estimates of major agricultural commodities for 41 countries and 12 geographical regions. The special theme chapter of this year’s edition focusses on the prospects and challenges of the agricultural sector in Sub-Saharan Africa.
