Abstract

Several current challenges render it imperative for agriculture to increase its output in order to feed 9.7 billion people by 2050. This urgent need to invest in agriculture, including the system that extends beyond production, is driven by population growth, urbanization, the structural transformation of economies, and food requirements of the world’s poor who mostly depend on the sector. A new strategy is necessary to mobilize investments to the sector and the agricultural system, which will involve increasing public expenditures, encouraging the private sector to invest in agriculture and the broader food system, and supporting smallholder farmers to better link to agricultural value chains and produce sustainably. The chapter discusses this new strategy and provides examples of successful experiences from the developing world.
