How to make agricultural development sustainable.

CLIMATE @ RISK AND FOOD @ RISK

CLIMATE @ RISK AND FOOD @ RISK

In April 2016, the BCFN Foundation held its first workshop, inviting research fellows, experts and stakeholders from various fields to an open, multidisciplinary debate on the topic of sustainable development in the agriculture sector.

The theme of the workshop and of the subsequent public consultation was the relationship between risks related to climate change and risks related to food in terms of food security and sustainable agriculture.

THE STAKEHOLDER WORKSHOP

Do the conditions to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals currently exist? This was the first question which the experts involved were called upon to answer.Through individual and group working sessions, the stakeholders imagined new scenarios and solutions to tackle the challenges related to climate change, by defining the guidelines for new sustainable development paradigms.

The workshop ended with the drafting of a shared, co-authored document which gathered the various points of view of all the experts involved in one place. The document was then published for public consultation, thereby enriching it with new contributions and ideas.

Public Consultation

The BCFN Foundation made this document available for public consultation, bringing ten critical questions on sustainable development in the agri-food system to light. The publication also proposes a paradigm shift which would allow the community to work on solutions (best practices and tools) which would actively promote innovation.

Everyone was invited to take part by sending us reactions, comments, scientific opinions and examples of best practices which offer inspiration for reflection and in-depth exploration of the issue of food sustainability.

Public consultation ended August 26, 2016.
