World Agricultural Forum 2017
Trade, New Technologies and Food Security: Solving the Triple Challenge to Agriculture
About the Conference
2017 will be a decisive year for global agriculture and trade. Recent political changes will have a profound impact on the way we produce and distribute food. In this, Asia will play a critical and leading role. The region has more than half of the world’s population, is home to fast growing economies and faces numerous environmental challenges.
At this year’s conference in Singapore, the World Agricultural Forum (WAF) will provide new insights on how governments, the private sector and non-governmental organisations are preparing for the future of agriculture in Asia.
Co-hosted by the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), Nanyang Technological University, on 6-7 July, the conference will serve as a global platform to encourage dialogue among those who can and will create an impact. It will brainstorm the following themes: 1) Agriculture and Food Trade in the New World Order; 2) Imperatives for Securing the Food Production Base; 3) Technologies to Promote Sustainable Farming and Food Security; and 4) Good Governance, Partnerships and Agricultural Productivity”. The conference also seeks to provide recommendations for policymakers and investors and will conclude with a 2017 World Agricultural Forum Declaration.
Political and business leaders around the world will benefit from this event as the World Agricultural Forum is a unique platform where new technologies and innovations in agriculture converge.
