Food for All! Trade for secure, diverse and sustainable nutrition.
The 12th Global Forum for Food and Agriculture will be held from 16 to 18 January 2020.
The Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) is an international conference on central issues of vital importance for global agricultural and food policies. It is held in Berlin on an annual basis at the same time as the International Green Week (IGW). The GFFA is hosted by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) in cooperation with the Berlin Senate, Messe Berlin GmbH and the GFFA Berlin e.V..
The three-day forum features a large number of events that provide an international audience of experts from the worlds of politics, business, science and civil society with an opportunity to address and reach consensus on issues and challenges relating to global agricultural policy and food security.
The GFFA 2020 will examine the subject of trade from every angle. The event is to raise public awareness of the role played by trade and an integrated trading system for global food security. We aim to address the following issues:
- What role does trade play in respect of food security?
- How can we create fair rules for agricultural trade?
- How can we make global supply chains inclusive, sustainable and safe?
- How can we design trade to promote agricultural development?
