Down 2 Earth:
Global Conference on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change

October 31 through November 5

The Government of the Netherlands, in close cooperation with the Governments of Ethiopia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Vietnam, the World Bank and the FAO, is honored to organize the 2010 conference on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change.

Agriculture in developing countries must become climate-smart in order to cope with the combined challenge of feeding a warmer, more heavily populated world, according to a new report from the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.

Climate change is expected to reduce agriculture productivity, stability and incomes in many areas that already experience high levels of food insecurity — yet world agriculture production will need to increase by 70 percent over the coming four decades in order to meet the food requirements of growing world population.

Conference participants will develop a roadmap with concrete actions linking agriculture-related investments, policies and measures to the transition to lower carbon-emitting, climate-resilient growth.

Agriculture can be the solution to many of the world problems. Now is the time to agree on collective answers to complex challenges. Our world hungers for action.
