setting an observatory of world agriculture which main goal would be to support policy debate on agriculture vs global issues by enhancing access and use of information on current trends and future projections of structural transformations of different food and agriculture systems and the associated impacts (social, economic and environmental), at local to global levels. To achieve this, OWA’s main objectives are:
-Document more accurately the diversity and dynamics of the world's agricultural production systems (e.g., their structural transformations, vulnerability);
-Contribute to the production of derived information (e.g. comparative analyses both in time and space) needed by different stakeholders involved in relevant policy debates ;
-Strengthen local, national and regional capacities of stakeholders, particularly those of farmers and policy makers, to produce and use agricultural information, and participate in public debates.
