Re-energising Global Agricultural Productivity

At the G20 Summit in Cannes, world leaders agreed for the first time to commit to sustainably increase agricultural production and productivity to feed a world population expected to reach more than 9 billion people by 2050.

To that end, they estimated that agricultural production will have to increase by 70% over the same period. They agreed to further invest in agriculture, in particular in the poorest countries and to improve market information and transparency in order to make international markets for agricultural commodities more effective and mitigate the adverse effects of excessive price volatility.

viEUws brings you in-depth and thorough analysis of this issue through a series of exclusive interviews of key stakeholders in this debate recorded at a G20 seminar co-organized by the French Permanent Representation and the Australian Government in Brussels on 13 October 2011 and entitled: 'Re-energising Global Agricultural Productivity'
