Robust local and global food systems are comprised of strong, viable farming communities supported by domestic SMEs. How will the private sector, both small and large businesses, contribute to empowering farmers?
This two-session event will review how empowering grower-communities advances national food security and promotes sustainable agriculture. Built on the Food and Agriculture Business Principles framework, the sessions will introduce a global registry for actors contributing to food security, as well as focus on how business is working to help governments deliver food security policy in the ASEAN region.
The event is co-organized by the International Trade Centre, a joint agency of the UN and WTO, and the UN Global Compact in association with Women in Parliament and other partners.
