Tropical Agriculture in Latin America
In a world of environmental limits, sustainable and productive agriculture is crucial to foster socioeconomic development and food security, primarily in low income economies. The purpose of this paper is to examine the challenges and potential opportunities for Latin American countries which are characterised by tropical agriculture and (semi)subsistence farming. Policy support based on institutional coordination, investment in tropic-specific agricultural technology and the promotion of joint private- public initiatives are evaluated and identified as key factors to increase agricultural development.
