To implement the strategy it is necessary to perform a set of tasks: to determine the main parameters of the environmentally safe state of the agricultural sector; identify the priorities of environmental and economic policy in relation to the objectives of environmental and economic security of the agricultural sector; substantiate the ways and means of achieving the objectives of environmental and economic security of the agricultural sector; to form a set of measures to ensure the achievement of certain goals and objectives; identify the necessary resources for the implementation of certain tasks, as well as conditions and factors that ensure the greatest efficiency of their use; to ensure effective organization of monitoring the implementation of strategic planning documents in ensuring the environmental and economic security of the agricultural sector. The mechanism for implementing the strategy involves combining the efforts of government agencies and society at the state, regional and local governments to coordinate the strategy with existing comprehensive target programs and monitor its implementation based on targets.
