Expo 2015 - Conference on linking food security to sustainable agricultural policies in the Mediterranean: The expert view
EXPO – CASCINA TRIULZA, Milan, Italy
In the context of the Expo Milano 2015, OCP Policy Center and the Istituto Affairi Internazionali (IAI) are hosting a series of convening around one of the central themes of Expo 2015: Feeding the Planet. This series will consist of three events in which different stakeholders will discuss the link between food security and sustainable agricultural policies in the Mediterranean.
This first event is a day of dialogue and scientific investigation on the link between food security and agricultural challenges with representatives from the world of research, academia and the private sector.
During this event, OCP Policy Center and IAI will circulate and discuss the results of the joint research on these topics, conducted throughout 2014, outside the inner circle of researchers, academics and practitioners, with the objective of promoting reflection and discussion about some key aspects of the general theme of Expo 2015 such as the link between sustainable agricultural policies and food security.
