This research examines the current state of sustainable agricultural development in Iraq and explores its association with various factors. Data were obtained from reputable sources such as the World Bank Database, and econometric tests were used. Utilizing the autoregressive distributed lag model (ARDL), the study analyzes the impact of agricultural employment (EA), consumer price index (CPI), agriculture policies including crop production index (CROP) and arable land (AL), and natural resource rents (NR) on sustainable agricultural development (SDA) in both short and long terms. The results reveal that CROP positively and significantly influences SDA in the short and long run, while CPI and AL also positively affect SDA. Nevertheless, CPI has an insignificant influence in the long run. NR negatively impacts SDA in the short and long run. The study's findings contribute to understanding the role of these factors in promoting sustainable agricultural development in Iraq, suggesting beneficial insights for policymakers and researchers in the environmental and agricultural sectors.
