FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia

Regional workshop for Europe and Central Asia on sustainable food and agriculture for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement

Minsk, Republic of Belarus, 19/06/2017 - 20/06/2017

Following the first workshop on this topic in December 2016, FAO is convening a broader circle of countries to discuss agriculture’s place in the 2030 Agenda on sustainable development.

The overall objective of the event is to help member countries nationalize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to raise awareness amongst all relevant partners (governments, farmers, etc.) on the sustainable food and agriculture’s contribution and its primary role within the global agenda. During the two days necessary actions should be determined that create not only ownership, but also foster cross-sectoral dialogue and partnerships.
