Meeting the Twin Challenges: Food security and water management (Berlin, Germany)

20 January 2017, International Green Week - Berlin

The Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) is organising a high level panel on food security and water management at the International Green Week (CityCube, Hall A2) from 14.00 to 16.00 on Friday 20 January 2017.
 

The panelist debate will also feature a roundtable policy discussion, including ministers in the midst of the audience, and will be hosted by Phil Hogan, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development.
 

The event focuses on an active engagement with all panel participants and the audience with the aim of identifying appropriate policy responses and best practice examples in view of tackling enormous global challenge of water and sustainable agriculture: “Without a clean water supply for farmland there can be no food security. Achieving sustainable agriculture to accomplish UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 – end hunger –, while significantly contributing to SDG 6 - availability of clean water –, is worth fighting for.”
