Agricultural Development for Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development

The Church of Sweden is a well-known and experienced Swedish actor in the area of development cooperation. The organization’s position paper on agricultural development for poverty reduction and sustainable development published on December 3, 2013 is now available in English. The position paper will lay the foundation for the policy dialogue relating to agricultural development the Church of Sweden engage in 2014-2017.

The position paper is focused on the issues the Church of Sweden sees as most central to promote an agricultural development that enables empowerment of farmers, poverty reduction and a sustainable development. It also identifies the factors that might both enable and hinder a successful development but is not analyzing these factors in depth. After identifying the most important issues the paper lists policy proposals that will be high on the agenda for the current program period.
