On 20 October FAO partnered with four stakeholders: Iwokrama International Centre, Conservation International, Guyana Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) and Guyana Society for Biodiversity and Ecosystems (GSBE) to host a panel discussion and exhibition aimed at promoting the International Year of Pulses and exploring the theme for World Food Day 2016, ‘Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too.’.   Panelists were invited to reflect on areas related to food and agriculture where changes are needed including: Forestry, Agriculture, Livestock, Natural Resources, Fisheries, and Food Systems. More than 100 students from the Guyana School of Agriculture benefitted from the discussions and interaction.  A variety of pulses and information related to pulses and climate change were on display at the event.
