From 2 to 4 April, Ministers of Agriculture and other delegates from FAO member nations from Europe and Central Asia will debate the issue at a special Ministerial Round Table . The purpose of the meeting will be to analyze the causes of FLW in Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia along specific food supply chains, while also addressing policy options that would mitigate the impact of FLW on food security in the region. During the rest of the week, the conference topics will include the state of food and agriculture in the soil, the International Year of Family Farming, priorities for FAO’s work in the region, the FAO network of country offices in the zone, and more.
