4th Agriculture and Rural Development Day: Lessons in Sustainable Landscapes and Livelihoods - 18 June 2012, Rio de Janeiro
Do you believe in the importance of investing in an integrated landscape approach that improves agricultural productivity and rural livelihoods, while also addressing threats to forests, water, and biodiversity? Then make plans now to attend Agriculture and Rural Development Day at Rio+20!
The purpose of the 4th Agriculture and Rural Development Day is to ensure that the vision for a sustainable green economy includes clear steps for building a sustainable food system.
The half-day event will give voice to a wide cross section of people working on land, food and sustainability. Learning events will explore concrete cases of success that could translate into a thorough transformation of the global food system.
Additionally you may register to attend an afternoon event on the same day, hosted by CGIAR, a global research partnership of 15 Centers that focus on sustainable development research. Together with Brazilian partner Embrapa, CGIAR will hold an afternoon set of sessions with a focus on Science for a Food Secure Future. More information at http://consortium.cgiar.org
