Introducing 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?

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? What if every farm on earth followed a single harmonized basic set of G.A.P. criteria to apply safe and sustainable practices?
