Subject. The article addresses the issues of synchronizing the strategic planning of agricultural development and harmonizing its documentation system with the national food security objectives.
Objectives. The aim is to run diagnostics of strategic planning and its food security documentary system.
Methods. The study employs methods of generalization of scientific works and systematization of expert assessments therein, critical analysis of strategic documents on agriculture and food security, abstract-logical method for building a model of strategic process.
Results. The paper presents the results of strategic planning process and its documentary system in the field of food security, conclusions on the need to strengthen harmonization between the main strategic planning documents, key objectives and criteria for achieving them, planned results and resources, benchmarks and performance indicators to ensure physical and economic accessibility of products. I offer a fundamentally different conceptual model of the strategic planning process. It is supported by a system of interconnected documents. This model is based on production projects and quotas linking the production and consumption at the level of rational nutritional standards.
Conclusions. The proposed model enables to logically incorporate the objectives set in the field of food security into the system of strategic planning documents. The findings may be useful for agro-industrial complex authorities to coordinate decisions on agricultural development and food security as a complex problem.
