The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has restructured in order to ensure supply security after the recent pandemic and global warming. A "Department of Supply Security" was established under the Strategy Development Department within the Ministry.

Climate change due to the epidemic and global warming that the world has experienced recently, and policies that prioritize protectionist and self-sufficiency in the field of agriculture-food have moved to the top of the agenda of countries again.

In this new process, the "Department of Supply Security" was established under the Strategy Development Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, which prepared an action plan in order to bring a new perspective to agriculture.

The department established with the published directive will ensure supply security, which is among the most important duties of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.

Among the duties of the Presidency are analyzing the adequacy process of the production of strategic agricultural products to be determined by the Ministry and developing precautionary proposals.

Again, the Presidency will compile, monitor and analyze the necessary methodology, data architecture and internal and external data for the monitoring of supply security, and will take the necessary measures. In this context, national and international developments will be followed and reported.

With the Supply Security Tracking System to be established, the process will be monitored in the digital environment and decision support reports will be generated.

Data collection, analysis, monitoring and decision support services will be provided through the system, whose establishment continues.


Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Prof. Dr. Vahit Kirişci pointed out that recent events in the world have made agriculture even more important.

Stating that the understanding of the agricultural sector has gradually changed with the effect of industrialization, urbanization, trade, R&D and other related factors in the last century, Kirişci said, “While yesterday, production-oriented agriculture was focused on market and consumer preference; What was done yesterday for local and regional markets is today done for national and global markets. Although consumer preferences change rapidly, especially due to urbanization and increase in welfare, this change increases the problems a little, but it also brings wide opportunities. used his statements.

Kirişci underlined that events such as the pandemic, drought process and the Russia-Ukraine crisis clearly reveal the strategic value of agriculture. Noting that all these developments have shown everyone once again that agriculture is the right investment area, Kirişci made the following assessment:

“According to the 2050 projections, we expect the world population to reach 10 billion and our country's population to reach 100 million. We see that the number of tourists, which reached 50 million in the past years and decreased due to the pandemic, has increased even more. Therefore, there are new opportunities and new springs before us for these lands where agriculture started and civilizations took shape.

Thanks to correct and planned investments, both agricultural production will increase and agriculture-industry integration will become stronger. Thus, the rate of conversion of investment into profit and the growth in the amount will directly reflect on the development of our country.”

Stating that Turkey will continue to be the pioneer of agriculture in the new situation, Minister Kirişci noted that the Department of Supply Security, established within the ministry, will perform a strategic task.
