14 July 2015, Addis Ababa – Highlighting a renewed global interest in agriculture, the European Investment Bank (EIB) is expanding its collaboration with FAO, a move aimed at broadening and deepening investment in agriculture in countries outside of the European Union.

In October 2013 the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) endorsed its Multi-Year Programme of Work for 2015-17, including a Round Table entitled “A Plan of Action to Build Knowledge, Skills, and Talent Development to Further Food and Nutrition Security”.
