The multidimensionality of the agri-food sector has brought the concept of sustainable rural development, in which production systems can operate integrated with the environment, while promoting social inclusion, environmental conservation, adding economic value and supplying the demands for food and energy. However, this conception often distances itself from reality, as several production arrangements fail to satisfactorily meet at least one of the dimensions of sustainability. Achieving this balance depends on a comprehensive and geographically oriented range of alternatives to make the decision-making process of where to invest work and resources in public management, in research institutions, in the dissemination of knowledge and in the practical operation of productive arrangements by the various agents. of civil society. The GPP works on the analysis and proposal of policies, programs and projects aimed at implementing healthier, sustainable and equitable agri-food systems.
