    Surge una preocupación por los impactos del COVID-19 en las agriculturas familiares campesinas. Sus relatos sostienen que no han recibido la ayuda humanitaria suficiente o el apoyo estatal acorde a la importancia de sus actividades. Esto agrava su situación de vulnerabilidad poniendo en riesgo su salud y vida. Sin duda, las medidas sanitarias implementadas para evitar la propagación del virus tienen consecuencias directas sobre el funcionamiento de los sistemas agroalimentarios y quienes lo sostienen: las familias campesinas e indígenas del país.

    This work summarizes background papers prepared for the World Bank Group with significant input from government counterparts and other development partners. It takes stock of major recent developments and argues that a lot has been achieved in the last decade in terms of production of commodities for export and food consumption, with favorable impact on rural poverty reduction. It also argues that the two factors driving the recent agricultural performance, namely favorable international prices and expansion of the agricultural frontier, have reached their limits.

    A MP 759 também prevê mudanças na titulação urbana, além dos ajustes ao Programa de Reforma Agrária. No que se refere ao meio rural, a medida corrige contradições que, em última instância, inviabilizam a promoção do bem-estar de agricultores familiares e o desenvolvimento sustentável do campo
