Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

Dear all,

We would like to share a brief update on the process of establishing an International Digital Council for Food and Agriculture.

Your comments have provided precious information that fed into the drafting process of the updated concept note “Realizing the potential of digitalization to improve the agri-food system: Proposing a new International Digital Council for Food and Agriculture”.

This note has received the support from 74 Ministers of Agriculture during its presentation at the 2020 Global Forum for Food and Agriculture held in Berlin.

The topic of the establishment of the Digital Council will be brought to the attention of FAO Member States at the spring session of the Governing Bodies, where the next steps in the process will be defined.
