Sustainable Agriculture Initiatives in the Caribbean:
Realities From the field
Industrial agriculture today is very energy intensive: Inputs for agriculture have increased significantly, particularly for land preparation, fertilizer (primarily nitrogen), and irrigation.
This is also reflected in the close correlation between crop and oil prices, making high input agriculture even less profitable under higher energy costs and exceedingly volatile for consumers. The full production and supply chain accounts for around 30% of total global energy demand. 
The study below provides an assessment of the sustainable agriculture sector and an analysis of the constraints to its further development in the region. It also aims to share the lessons learned from existing undertakings or experiences, in order to identify gaps and opportunities and the policies and practical steps that can promote sustainable agriculture.
