Sustainable Agriculture Matrix

Full Title

Developing a sustainable agriculture matrix on a national scale


The objective of this Workshop is to develop a Sustainable Agriculture Matrix, a tool capable of measuring the agricultural sustainability of individual countries with respect to environment, society, and economy. The proposed tool is being created in response to the ratification of the Sustainable Development Goals by UN member countries in September 2015 and the need to be able to track progress toward SDGs.
