This working paper from the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), discusses Brazil's agroecological policies, and discuss them in relation to what the authors call the ‘Brazilian agricultural dilemma’ or the contradictions and conflicts of disproportionately supporting large-scale agribusiness for export over small-scale family farm production for domestic consumption.
The paper is part of a new One Pager series on Social Protection and the Post-2015 Agenda. The objective is to bring together different views and contribute to the ongoing global discussions about priorities for the post-2015 development agenda.
