Authors: Andy Duff and Andres Padilla The Latin American region is an important net exporter of food and agricultural commodities, accounting for 16% of total global food and agriculture exports and 4% of total food and agriculture imports. Informal employment is a persistent problem in Latin America and the Caribbean. Following a decade of economic growth and decline in unemployment rates, there are still million workers holding informal jobs, deprived of social protection and labour rights.

      The release of labor from the agricultural sector largely offset the employment gains in the export-manufacturing sector that occurred after NAFTA took effect. As noted earlier, it is impossible to establish precisely what proportion of the gain in export manufacturing jobs and the loss in agricultural jobs between and was directly.   Latin America, which is one of the world's richest regions in natural resources, has a large agricultural base of some 15 million farms. Many countries in the region see the global challenge of supporting 9 billion people by as an opportunity for growth via the agricultural sector.

Employment and unemployment definitions adopted in Latin American statistics can also be a source of misinterpretation of the working situation in agriculture. Employment usually considers all persons over a certain age (between 10 and 15 years) who worked at least one hour during a particular reference week.

In the last ve decades the agricultural area has grown 10 % in Latin America, going from to billion hectares. According to the current trend in agricultural.

In fact, according to World Bank data, a growth of 1% in GDP from the agricultural sector, results in an increase of expenditures of the three poorest deciles, by at least times that of the rest of the economy.

The creation of productive employment plays a key role in this regard as a critical nexus between growth and poverty reduction.

In particular, the role of productivity in the agricultural sector has been proposed as a determinant of when the process of industrialization begins and how fast standards of living progress in a country (Gollin et al.[14]).

Increases in agricultural productivity raise food production and allow labor to move to other sectors like manufacturing. The Role of Agriculture in Economic Development. the agricultural sector declines from being the dominant sector in terms of share of labor force and GDP to a relatively small sector, in rich countries both less than 5%.

The increase in real income permitted the allocation of substantial resources to the creation of knowledge. The agriculture sector, however, is one of only two industries that showed notable quarter-on-quarter growth in job creation.

This means that agriculture is still making an important contribution to employment, even though the industry is dealing with one of the worst droughts in South Africa’s : Janine Ryan.

While the private sector can be the engine of growth, innovation and job creation, government’s efforts to establish stable and supportive environments are critical. The bottom line is clear: An array of actors is lining up to realise the post agenda.

Governments have a role to play with these actors, including the private sector. A sustainably growing agricultural sector can generate decisive impetus and make signifi-cant contributions to the fight against poverty. Employment in agriculture and in sectors directly connected to agriculture plays a cru-cial role in achieving this.
