Abstract
Today, the agrifood sector faces major environmental and social challenges that pose a challenge to the competitiveness of SMEs and small farmers, while representing an opportunity to add value to the agricultural sector and improve livelihoods. These are circumstances that urgently require a system of governance that provides effective, fair and legitimate institutional responses that pave the way to the sustainability of the entire Agrifood System. For this to happen, innovations must be not only genetic, agronomic and technological, but also organizational, social and institutional. In this context, the need arises to plan and execute numerous projects simultaneously, which in turn increases the complexity of its direction. In this sense, the objective of this paper is to show the challenges faced by the agrifood sector in the 21st century, in order to highlight the importance of projects and Project Management for the transition process towards sustainability. The results highlight the need for new forms of governance, a path towards a higher level of organizational maturity, where the project and its direction should contribute to achieving the strategic objectives of the Organizations.
