Recent studies provide unequivocal evidence that current agricultural support policies are ineffective to achieve the multiple goals of food security, affordable healthy diets, remunerative livelihoods for farmers, and environmental protection. Repurposing agricultural support for investing in innovations in productivity-enhancing and sustainable emission-reducing production practices and for creating the incentives for their adoption can bring significant win-win-win gains for people, the planet, and prosperity.
