Investment Days 2018

FAO Investment Centre is hosting its ninth internal knowledge-sharing event, Investment Days 2018 on the 4th  and 5th  of July at FAO headquarters in Rome. The Investment Centre staff, FAO colleagues and invited guests will share knowledge, discuss issues relevant to their work and learn from one another.

Innovation for Better Investments is the theme of this year’s event. Through this lens we will explore the latest trends and thinking on topics of strategic importance to FAO’s work to support investments in member countries. The two-day event will focus on the following sub-themes:

· Innovative finance in food and agriculture

· Digital agriculture

Participants will include investment specialists, economists, agronomists and rural and social development specialists. Our guests include international financial institutions, impact investment funds, crow-funding initiatives, and farmers federations; non-governmental organizations and ICT for agriculture service providers. Institutions dealing with Big Data, Internet of things, and different applications of digital tools in agriculture are also participating.

This year’s event promises to be as active and interesting as the previous years including many of the features you enjoyed so much –with plenty of time for discussion.

Don’t forget to participate in the staff awards and photo competition.

The provisional agenda is below and will be updated periodically.

We look forward to seeing you soon,
