How does AGRIS facilitate knowledge sharing to support the fight against hunger?

This session, by Imma Subirats (AGRIS Programme Manager and Senior Information Management Officer, FAO), was structured around what AGRIS is and the ways in which it facilitates the knowledge sharing that is so vital to winning the fight against hunger. After locating AGRIS in the context of FAO and its mission, Imma outlined the history and evolution of AGRIS, along with its general composition, functions, scope and users.
