Regional Technical Platform on Green Agriculture

The main objective and driving force for establishing a Regional Technical Platform on Green Agriculture in Europe and Central Asia is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge within the region and among other regions on the various areas of green agriculture, with the involvement of international, national and local development partners, building on good experiences and enhancing regional and interregional collaboration.

The Regional Technical Platform on Green Agriculture provides a digital, user-friendly, open, intraregional and interregional gateway for sharing information. It is a knowledge repository that facilitates connections among expert networks regarding various technical areas related to green agriculture.

The Regional Technical Platform on Green Agriculture aims at contributing to more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems, in line with the FAO Strategic Framework and under the so-called “four betters” – better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life – while leaving no one behind.

In the quest for sustainable agriculture amid environmental crises and food security concerns, the recent report “From nature-negative to nature-positive production – A conceptual and practical framework for agriculture based on thermodynamics” emerges as a guiding light.

It is estimated that around half the obsolete pesticides in the world can be found in the former Soviet Union, with a large portion currently sitting in Central Asia. During Soviet times, the region was an important centre for agriculture, particularly cotton production, with mandatory pesticide application and oversupply.
Hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the first-ever Science and Innovation Week for Europe and Central Asia facilitated robust discussions and knowledge exchange on the integration of science, research, and innovation with policymaking to drive the transformation of agrifood systems in Europe and Central Asia toward sustainability, inclusivity, and resilience.

The third issue of Biodiversity in Action illustrates why the health of humans and the environment requires biodiversity and how all dimensions of food security depend on it, highlighting the risks for nutrition and health and the benefits for food and nutritional security.


This leaflet provides nutshell information about pesticide lifecycle management for all stakeholders to assist in design of locally adapted pesticide lifecycle management.


This document tries to answer such questions as “What does nature positive exactly mean?” and “How can agriculture aid in ecosystem restoration?”
