Measuring and monitoring recovery with sustainable transformation in post-pandemic Latin America and the Caribbean

“Never let a good crisis go to waste” is a quote frequently heard from politicians to emphasize that inside every emergency, there is opportunity for positive transformation. Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is the one of the hardest hit regions of the world by COVID19 (see Figure 1) and its impact has had adverse consequences across the agricultural supply chain. Labor supplies have been disrupted, credit access has tightened, and agricultural inputs have become scarce among other challenges. At the same time, massive amounts of resources are being mobilized to counter and minimize negative consequences. FAO’s position is that the pandemic has opened a window to transform the agricultural sector, and rebuild a more stable, resilient, and fair system. Indeed, FAO is working closely with partners across LAC to guide policies and investments which aim to mitigate the immediate negative impacts on food security, while making agriculture more sustainable.
