Territorial analysis of Technical Assistance and Rural Extension (ATER) needs, infrastructure and plan for monitoring and evaluating the actions undertaken - Second Phase

(2019-2020) At the request of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), the GPP has been working with medium-sized rural producers for 5 years. The first phase of the study involved complex spatial modeling, aiming at characterizing the average farmer; field research at the national level, in partnership with the Brazilian Association of State Entities for Technical Assistance and Rural Extension (ASBRAER), 20 public ATER institutions, 539 extension workers and 2,468 rural producers; review of some of the main rural credit policies for the medium producer (PRONAMP and the ABC Program); and proposal of an ATER service delivery model. As a result of this phase and in the face of new findings on the Brazilian countryside, the Federal Government now demands to expand its target audience of ATER policies, review the National ATER Policy (PNATER) and detail ATER service delivery models adapted to the different regional realities. This is one of the recent challenges of the GPP, developed during the year 2020 and has complex territorial modeling and spatial characterization of production chains considered key for an expanded public of rural producers, with differentiated demands and priorities in relation to ATER public policies.
