Globally, the sector experienced a reduced demand for restaurant and commercial food services, restrictions in labor, temporary closures of meat processing facilities, and supply chain disruptions.ii These impacts are in addition to other chronic environmental risks that the sector must manage – a decline in water and soil nutrients, loss of arable land, deforestation, and climate change.iii Despite the challenges, the COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity to observe the investments and changes that the agricultural sector has made over the past year to further strengthen its resilience.
