FAO is organizing an International Symposium on Agricultural Innovation for Family Farmers at FAO HQ in Rome, November 21-23 2018. Non-state actors interested in attending the Symposium can express their interest in attending here until 31 August 2018.

The theme of innovation is of course highly relevant to GFAR’s work in promoting farmer-centred agri-food research and innovation. FAO has therefore asked GFAR to reach out through the extensive GFAR network of Partners in agricultural research and innovation for development, to help raise awareness of the Symposium across all GFAR constituencies and in particular to encourage the active participation of non-state actors, e.g. farmers, civil society organizations, youth and women’s organizations and the private sector.

We are pleased to do so and encourage you to find the background information on the Call, as well as the criteria for participation at this link.

Additionally, please visits, explore and share the dedicated website for the Symposium.
