Trends and Challenges Facing the Food & Agriculture sector:
- Responding to rapidly evolving changes in global food systems due to dramatic shifts in climate and demand.
- The shift away from evidence -based policy responses to meaningful food security and enhanced environmental sustainability.
- The growing trend to view business as the “problem” and not part of the solution among public and private actors who fail to recognize mutual interests and limitations.
- Advocating for business as a solutions partner in international forums including the OECD Health Committee and OECD Agriculture committee.
- Showcasing business leadership, investments and innovation at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) as they seek effective policy approaches on food security and nutrition in the context of changing rural-urban dynamics.
- Calling for public/private partnerships involving all stakeholders to improve transparency and broaden participation to meet the global challenges facing the sustainability of agriculture and food systems.
