The State of Food and Agriculture Report 2017

Today the 2017 edition of the State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA) report: Leveraging food systems for inclusive rural transformation has been released. 

The new report looks at how population growth, increasing urbanization, technologies, and climate change are transforming rural and urban areas, and how the world’s food systems are evolving.

Please note that the report is available in different formats, and in all UN languages, and are downloadable from:
