How can we feed the world? EDD12: Join the debate!

272 views

On 16 and 17 October Brussels (Belgium) will host the 7th edition of the European Development Days (#EDD12). ‘Sustainable Agriculture, Food Security and Resilience’ is one of the three sub-themes of EDD12 and a major issue in the world of development. With an estimated 9 billion people to feed by 2050, endemic famine and drought in parts, and an ever more changeable world, the time to make positive changes for sustainable and inclusive development is now! Organised by the European Commission, the EDD is Europe’s premier forum on international affairs and development cooperation. The EDD is a policy-making laboratory for practitioners from the field and decision-makers to share their experience and generate new ideas. The forum is a truly collaborative platform where everybody has a say. You can also join the debate on the headline theme of EDD12: ‘Supporting Inclusive and Sustainable Growth for Human Development’. We look forward to receiving your views and questions!
