WFO Young Farmers at GFFA 2021 to demonstrate their forward-looking approach to work on global agriculture challenges and opportunities!

Again this year, the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) will join the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) to voice the farmers.

17 promising future farmers’ leaders selected from the new class attending the WFO Gymnasium High- Level Capacity Building Programme will compose this year’s WFO delegation led by the President Theo de Jager.

The GFFA is an international conference on central issues of global agricultural and food policies, held in Berlin annually.

The 2021 event will occur virtually from 18 to 22 January, focusing on how agriculture can provide the world long-term with food for a balanced diet despite pandemics and climate change.
Representatives from politics, business, science, and civil society will convene to engage in a constructive exchange on the following four key questions: 1) How can food systems emerge stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic? 2) How can the agricultural sector help prevent further pandemics? 3) How can food systems become more climate-resilient? 4) How can food systems improve in mitigating climate change?

For the fifth time this year, at the invitation of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), the WFO youngsters’ delegation will be engaged in the International Young Farmers’ Forum, working out on a joint declaration on the GFFA’s subject to be presented at the Berlin Agriculture Ministers’ Conference on 22 January, the last day of the GFFA event.

More information will follow closer to the date.
