GFAR TALKS: A SHOWCASE FOR DEBATE ON CHALLENGING AND PROVOCATIVE TOPICS RELATED TO AGRIFOOD SYSTEM TRANSFORMATION
Premiering on Wed, 26th Jan 2022, GFAR Talks is a showcase for debate on challenging and provocative topics related to agrifood system transformation, climate change and innovations in agriculture. These debates make use of GFAR’s global platform to put farmers, women and indigenous and marginalized communities center stage, making for a lively and all-inclusive experience.
For this initiative, GFAR is partnering with us, YPARD - Young Professionals for Agricultural Development, to ensure that youth is represented, that their voices are heard. Youth representatives will be invited to contribute to the webinars as participants, experts, moderators or panelists.
The objective of GFAR Talks is to engage Partners in GFAR and other stakeholders in strategic dialogues and topical debates on complex and often controversial issues related to all aspects of agrifood systems. In addition to experts and opinion makers, GFAR Talks will give a voice to often marginalized groups to express their views, perspectives and insights on each topic.
Topics for discussion will be timely and of interest to a broad cross section of the GFAR community. They may also be related to specific global or regional events or topical actions of interest to Partners in GFAR.
