The Special Event offers an excellent opportunity for delegates of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, policy makers and experts to discuss and exchange information and knowledge regarding linkages between the conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources for food and agriculture and the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. It also allows exploring opportunities to strengthen and improve these linkages and to engage in a dialogue on genetic resources and food security.
