Repurposing Public Support to Food and Agriculture

Just Rural Transition, World Farmers Organisation, WWF, OECD, FAO, WRI, World Bank, Switzerland, USA, Japan, ODI, SDSN

The objective of this coalition is to support countries who have indicated a desire to repurpose their forms of public agricultural support by helping them a) identify which public support measures are exacerbating climate, environmental, and development challenges, and b) redesign these measures, not only to ‘do no harm’ but to help improve food and nutrition security, strengthen the soil and water quality, increase biodiversity, build resilience, and mitigate climate change. These repurposed policies – developed inclusively, with the meaningful participation of food producers – will align with countries’ international trade agreements, policies, and regulatory frameworks.

Guiding the coalition is a Policy Action Agenda, developed with support from the UK government, the World Bank, and Just Rural Transition. The Agenda identifies a range of concrete actions that both governments and non-state actors can take to help repurpose public support to agriculture.
