AGRIMONITOR: Agricultural Policy in the Caribbean (edX)
Learn the effects of agricultural policy in the Caribbean and Latin America, 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?
