The panel of this event's first part - including Bioversity International's Director General, Ann Tutwiler - will create a space for constructive dialogue with a focus on strengthening the relationships among the private sector, development organizations, governments and other stakeholders directly or indirectly involved in responding to food and nutrition security and environmental restoration. It will showcase the rationale for new initiatives such as an Agrobiodiversity Index or a Landscape Connectivity Alliance and how these can be tools for countries and corporations to increase private and public investment in sustainable food and agriculture.
The Forum for the Future of Agriculture takes place on Tuesday, March 28.
