Responsible Agricultural Investment

Uruguay has a very sophisticated and advanced information system on land purchase and sale operations according to Director-General José Graziano da Silva of the FAO. In a recent visit by minister Kreimerman to the FAO Uruguay’s experience in tracking information on the purchase and sale of private land was highlighted. Da Silva stressed the importance of sharing this experience in discussions on the Principles for Responsible Agricultural Investment which take place in the framework of the Committee on World Food Security.
