AGRIMONITOR: Agricultural policy, food security and climate change

Pedro Martel, Carmine Paolo De Salvo, Rachel Boyce, Timothy E. Josling, César Falconi, Amal-Lee Amin, Juan José Egas, IDBx

Learn the effects of agricultural policy in Latin America and the Caribbean, and analyze them using the AGRIMONITOR platform, developed by IDB.

As a consumer, you know the price of the food that you consume daily. However, do you know why your food costs this amount and why it is different from the price it’s sold for in other countries? Well, agricultural public policies determine, among other things, the price you have to pay for your food. In fact, did you know that these policies also impact food security and climate change?

Do not miss this chance to compare agricultural policies in Latin America and the Caribbean, and to describe their influence in food security, climate change and regional competitiveness. For you to achieve this, we will introduce you to ‘AGRIMONITOR’, a database created by IDB that contains information about 23 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. AGRIMONITOR will be your ‘right-hand tool’ in the analysis of all these relevant topics.

In addition to the use of AGRIMONITOR, in the course you will find content videos in which specialists from several organizations (IDB, FAO and OECD) will share their knowledge about the topics covered in the course, readings, IDB case studies in which we promote public policy analysis, suggested readings, and practical activities that allow you to apply the content you have learnt.

Furthermore, if you obtain 90 points out of 100 in the course, you will have the chance to participate in the “Researching with AGRIMONITOR” contest. The winner (or winners) will work on a research project for the IDB Environment, Rural Development and Disaster Risk Management Division, under the conditions stipulated by the Bank. US$10,000 will be available to finance research projects related to MOOC topics.

Join the course and examine which are the best agricultural public policies in your country.

AGRIMONITOR is waiting for you!
