The problem of developing indicators of socio-economic systems sustainable development is relevant due to the widespread use by international organizations, including the UN, and by scientists in the field of sustainable development. By the sustainable development of the food market we mean achievement of a given level of food security through the achievement of four goals: the satisfaction of the needs of the domestic market based on the food self-sufficiency; achieving a high quality of life through good nutrition; the sustainable integration in the world market; the environmental security.
The subject of study is sustainability of food and agriculture systems of the world countries.
The purpose of the study is to develop a methodology for sustainability assessment of food and agriculture systems of the world countries based on a cluster analysis, and propose strategies of specified clusters (countries) sustainable development.
The uniqueness of the research is characterised by two statements: it is based on a cluster analysis of 164 countries' indicators which characterise economic, social and natural resource potential for food and agriculture systems development; an assessment of different clusters (countries) contribution into the sustainability assessment of food and agriculture systems is based on the author's system of indicators. The conducted researches aim at the most important United Nations goals: zero hunger, food safety, global nutrition improvement, sustainable development of food and agriculture systems.
