EVENT: Agriculture and Rural Development Day

Agriculture and Rural Development Day will be held at the Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen on 12 December 2009 coinciding with the United Nations Climate Negotiations (UNFCCC COP‐15). The main objective of the Event is to lay the groundwork for a workplan of strategies and actions that will see agriculture fully incorporated into the post‐Copenhagen agenda. Approximately 300 participants are expected. The Event will consist of an opening plenary with keynote presentations, roundtable discussions on specific themes, poster sessions and a closing plenary. The event will bring together policy makers and negotiators, rural development practitioners, producers, civil society and the agricultural and climate change scientific community. The event will identify the no‐regret priorities for agriculture and food security – stressing the areas where the world needs to act regardless of exactly how climate change plays out locally.
