The first part of day 2 was dedicated to the role of good agricultural practices in supporting food security for future generations. Feeding 9.6 billion people in 2050 is one of the biggest challenges facing all of humanity today. How can good agricultural practices help secure food supplies today and in the future? Delegates also learned about public and private sector approaches to addressing food security through safe and sustainable agriculture.
We introduced the Declaration of Abu Dhabi for Global Food Security through Good Agricultural Practices: The joint initiative launched by the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform, the International Trade Centre (ITC), and GLOBALG.A.P. Helping farmers grow farms for their grandchildren: How can G.A.P. support food security for future generations?
The day continued with parallel sessions on several pressing topics, with keynote speakers and expert panelists, discussing thought provoking ideas and debating controversial concepts.
We closed the day with an exceptional cultural experience at the Conference Dinner.
