WFD 2005 Theme: Agriculture and Intercultural Dialogue

The WFD theme for 2005 is "Agriculture and Intercultural Dialogue". This theme would comprise two sub-themes:

1) "Cultures and agriculture" referring to technologies developed by the various civilizations.

2) "The contribution of civilizations to world agriculture", referring to the contribution of civilizations to world agriculture in terms of exchange of plant, animal, forestry etc. and in general terms any cultural material.

At Headquarters, FAO plans to launch the campaign with high profile special events intensively throughout all the 2005, leading up to World Food Day Ceremony, on the 16th October 2005.

FAO will be celebrating this year the 25th anniversary of the observance of WFD - which started in 1981 - as well as the 60th anniversary of the founding of FAO.

Special activities at country level will be organized with local authorities and WFD/TeleFood partners to mark this twin anniversary of WFD and FAO.
