Global Forum for Food and Agriculture, Berlin, January 2013
To promote responsible investment in agriculture worldwide, FAO actively participated in the 2013 session of the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA). The Forum, which took place in Berlin from 17 to 19 January 2013, is one of the best attended platforms of discussions on food and agriculture. Participants include representatives from government, private universities and civil society and culminates with an Agriculture Ministers’ Summit which gathered ministers from 80 countries this year. The general theme of the 2013 edition of the GFFA was “Responsible investment in the food and agriculture sectors”. To fuel the debate, FAO's Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (REU) and the Investment Centre Division organized two expert working panels.
