Committee on Agriculture 27 – Sustainable Livestock for Sustainable Development Goals

The 27th Session of the Committee on Agriculture (COAG 27) will be conducted as a virtual event from 28 September to 2 October 2020.

Sustainable Livestock for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a main theme.

The livestock sector is a key driver for a sustainable agricultural development. Sustainable livestock farming must improve food security, nutrition and healthy diets, inclusive economic growth, livelihoods, animal health and welfare, and address environment issues.
Challenges and opportunities for the livestock sector’s contribution to SDGs will be discussed at COAG 27.
COAG is one of FAO’s Governing Bodies with over 120 Member Nations. It provides policy and regulatory guidance on issues relating to agriculture, livestock, food safety, nutrition, rural development and natural resource management.

As FAO’s main technical advisory committee on agriculture, COAG provides guidance on further strengthening FAO’s contribution to the SDG Decade of Action.
