On 25 March 2020 will start a series of technical webinars, organized by Agreenium (l'Institut agronomique, vétérinaire et forestier de France), UN-ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific), and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). It is an opportunity for all of us to share experiences and lessons learnt, discuss challenges, and propose innovative solutions and models. These webinars aim to provide a holistic and comprehensive view of current trends in thematic areas related to global challenges, by combining development research and innovation perspectives.
The main objective of the webinars is to give practitioners the opportunity to interact with international experts, United Nations officers, university professors, researchers and fellow participants, throughout the world. They can be attended as interactive online sessions on Zoom, where it is possible to share perspectives, and questions to experts are encouraged. Webinars are also recorded and made available for self-study at anytime after the session.
