The year 2014 marks an historic opportunity to communicate the importance of research on sustainable agriculture to stakeholders involved in climate change and development policy.
The event will take place on 25 September 2014 in New York City at the Faculty House at Columbia University. Coinciding with the UN General Assembly, the inaugural meeting of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, and the UN Climate Summit, the event will gather an invitation-only audience of 250 participants. To reach a global audience, thousands more will be in attendance through live video streaming and social media channels.
Why CGIAR Development Dialogues?
The Development Dialogues present a unique opportunity for participants to help shape research and development for tomorrow’s food systems, landscapes, and rural economies. This is designed to be an annual event to influence policy and leverage the global attention of world leaders, scientists, donors, media, civil society, the private sector, and SDG negotiators on the vital role that crop and animal agriculture, forestry, fisheries, landscapes and food systems play in sustainable development. The event will use a variety of methods — plenary sessions, interactive discussion forums with both participants and an online audience, exhibit booths, and discussion corners — to debate and explore the connections between and the potential contribution of agriculture, livestock, forestry, fisheries, landscapes, and food systems to the SDGs.
Target audienceLeading donors, global policymakers, and country-based representatives in charge of implementing the SDGs, SDG negotiators and development thought-leaders.
