WFO Key Events and Activities
Listen Up: Engaging Farmers in the Process of Repurposing Agricultural Policy
9 February | 1:00 – 2:15 PM CET
Hosted by the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) together with World Bank and Just Rural Transition, the event aims to position better the ‘repurposing agricultural policies’ agenda and centre the farmer voices in the discussions at the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit, COP 26, and other global events.
The event will be the first of a series of farmer consultations that will feed into the United Kingdom‘s broader efforts to raise visibility and the momentum of efforts to repurpose public support to agriculture.
Participants will learn more about how food producers can be best integrated within decisionmaking processes around agriculture repurposing, ensuring effective, implementable, and inclusive change. To confirm your participation, please REGISTER HERE by 8 February 2021.
