AGRIMONITOR

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 the Caribbean and Latin America , and to describe their influence in food security , climate change and regional competitiveness. For you to achieve this, we will introduce you to ‘ AGRIMONITOR ’, an up-to-date database created by the IDB that contains information about 24 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.

In addition, you will get a chance to participate to the ''Research with AGRIMONITOR'' contest!.

If you get 90 out of 100 points in this course... you will gain access to an additional evaluation test. The students that pass this test will have a chance to win funding provided by the Inter-American Development Bank for a research project on one of the topics of the course (the topic will be announced to the students that pass the additional evaluation test).

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

AGRIMONITOR is waiting for you!
