Do you believe in the importance of investing in an integrated landscape approach that improves agricultural productivity and rural livelihoods, while also addressing threats to forests, water, and biodiversity? Then make plans now to attend or follow online the 4th Agriculture and Rural Development Day at Rio+20.
The purpose of the 4th Agriculture and Rural Development Day is to ensure that the vision for a sustainable green economy includes clear steps for building a sustainable food system.
The event will give voice to a wide cross section of people working on land, food and sustainability. Learning events will explore concrete cases of success that could translate into a thorough transformation of the global food system, and afternoon sessions will focus on science for a food-secure future.
