Agriculture is a key sector for the achievement of many UN Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to end poverty and hunger and promote prosperity and people’s wellbeing. In China, as well as in other economies, agriculture will continue to play a pivotal role, not only as a provider of food, but also as a source of income for many households.
The main objective of this workshop - organised jointly by the Agricultural Trade Promotion Center of the Ministry of Agriculture (ATPC), OECD, ICTSD, with the technical collaboration of FAO and in co-operation with other international organisations - will be to discuss and explore options for devising a comprehensive policy framework able to address food security challenges, in a context of evolving agricultural markets. The workshop will begin by presenting selected global issues and experiences, with a view to then focusing on the application for Chinese agricultural policy going forward.
