5th Forum for the Future of Agriculture

Meeting the Food and Environmental Challenge: Resource efficiency, innovation and governance

The European Landowners’ Organization (ELO) and Syngenta are pleased to present the 5th Forum for the Future of Agriculture (FFA2012). The forum was created in 2008 to stimulate open discussions on the future of European and world agriculture, and assess what should and what can be achieved over time, attaching equal weight to two challenges: food security and environmental security. The Forum currently has a programme of activity, focused on the food and environmental security agenda, across the European region. However, the main platform for the Forum for the Future of Agriculture remains its annual conference which takes place every spring in Brussels. This Conference has now established itself as the premier meeting place for those who have a stake in the future of agriculture and in the past has been addressed by European Commissioners, MEPs, National Government Ministers, Industry Leaders, NGOs, International Organisations, including OECD and FAO, and academics.This year’s conference will be specifically looking at the global importance of agriculture, a case study on Brazilian agriculture, the role of innovation in European agriculture, the ongoing CAP reform and a look at how to reconcile agricultural productivity with the environment. Key Speakers are:Dacian Ciolos - EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural DevelopmentJanez Potocnik - EU Commissioner for EnvironmentSimon Coveney - Irish Minister for Agriculture, Marine and FoodPaolo De Castro MEP - Chair of Agriculture and Rural Development Committee, European Parliament Rudolf Strohmeier - Deputy Director General, DG Research Innovation and Science.Parag Khanna - Senior Research Fellow, New America FoundationMauricio Antonio Lopes - Executive Director of R&D, Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA                                                                                                                             Tuesday, March 27th 2012 8:45am – 6:00pmThe Square, Brussels Translation in DE-EN-ES-FR-NL-RUREGISTER NOW on our website
