Family farming and medium producer


​The GPP has been involved, since its creation, in several studies aimed at evaluating and proposing public policies for family farming. These are studies that use different methodologies, such as qualitative-quantitative research with rural producers and other actors, as well as analysis of databases on the execution of programs, such as the National Program for the Strengthening of Family Agriculture (Pronaf), the Program for the Acquisition of Food (PAA), the National School Feeding Program (PNAE). All these surveys have in common the use of geoprocessing tools, with emphasis on multi-criteria territorial analysis, which aims to spatially locate areas impacted by public policies, as well as point out priority areas and guide managers' actions, based on the demands and bottlenecks identified in the research. . In recent years, the GPP has extended its focus to medium-sized rural producers, defining concepts and legal bases for this audience, as well as analyzing their demand for Technical Assistance and Rural Extension (ATER) and rural credit programs.
