The Global Strategy to improve agricultural and rural statistics (GSARS).
The Global Strategy to improve agricultural and rural statistics (GSARS) is the largest global effort ever put forth to enhance and ensure the sustainability of agricultural and rural statistics in developing countries. Its aim is to improve these countries’ statistical capacities to produce agricultural and rural statistics and use them to design more effective food security and agricultural and rural development policies.
The Global Strategy is an innovative international partnership programme implemented on a global scale across five regions: Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia and the Pacific, the Near East and the Commonwealth of Independent States. A major element of the programme’s success is the fact that it is underpinned by a broad and solid partnership of regional and international organizations.
