The AGM will take place at the Capo d'Africa Hotel in Rome, Italy on June 25th from 2:00 - 6:00 pm CET.

Meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires locally adapted agricultural practices that foster productivity, maintain environmental sustainability and promote rural livelihoods. Agriculture is a steward of the natural environment including land and water. The world’s farmers provide provide ecosystem services, food production, and livelihoods.
Each year, during the weeklong Plenary session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS46), attendees have the opportunity to host side events on key topics of relevance to CFS' mandate. In previous years, members of the Private Sector Mechanism have hosted side events on topics ranging from Agroecology to Women's Empowerment. We consistently see a good turnout of a range of CFS stakeholders at these events, which serve as an excellent chance for members of the private sector to share directly about their work.
