The forum will serve as a platform for exchange of knowledge on the latest advances in research and innovation for agriculture and food production in marginal environments.

International, regional and local aid and development agencies will have the chance to build partnerships, discuss burning challenges, discover successful projects and meet the actors implementing change across the value chain.

Sessions of interest will focus on:

  • Safeguarding livelihoods and food security worldwide
  • How climate change influence on ecosystems will impact agribusiness, food producers and farmers across the entire value chain
  • Mapping current marginal areas afflicted by salinity, poor quality water, very high temperature and identifying those globally at risk
  • How robust policy can be developed and implemented to support adaptation and mitigation strategies
