Ontwikkelingslanden produceren onvoldoende voedsel

De landbouw in de ontwikkelingslanden kent een stijgende productiviteit. Die stijging houdt echter geen gelijke tred met de stijgende behoeften van de groeiende bevolking. Dit stellen experten van de OESO en de FAO in een voorspelling voor de periode 2006-2015.

Een aantal snel groeiende ontwikkelingslanden als Brazilië, India en China spelen als producenten een steeds grotere rol op de wereldmarkt van landbouwproducten. De armste ontwikkelingslanden daarentegen worden steeds meer afhankelijk van de wereldmarkt om in hun voedselbevoorrading te voorzien. Dit betekent ook dat die landen meer onderhevig zijn aan de schommeling van de prijzen op die wereldmarkt. Globaal verwachten de experten wel een verdere daling van de prijzen door de toenemende concurrentie en productiviteit.

Het rapport meldt ook nog de stijgende graanuitvoer uit Oekraïne en Kazachstan. De hoge olieprijzen zullen de vraag naar biobrandstoffen verder laten stijgen, wat de productie van allerlei graansoorten, oliehoudende zaden, suikerbieten en -riet zal doen toenemen.

060704 OECD FAO Agricultural Outlook - 2006-2015

This is the second occasion that the Agricultural Outlook has been prepared jointly by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO). The report benefits from the commodity, policy and country expertise of both organisations. This annual report analyses world commodity market trends and medium term prospects for the main agricultural products. It shows how these markets are influenced by economic developments and government policies and highlights some of the risks and uncertainties that may influence market outcomes. In addition to OECD countries, the market projections in the report cover a large number of other countries and regions including the agricultural giants of India, China, Brazil and Russia as well as Argentina, South Africa and several least developed countries.
