OECD/BIAC Workshop: Green Growth in the Agro-Food Chain: What Role for the Private Sector?

 


 Information for Participants


Objectives of the workshop

This workshop will explore the role of the private sector in fostering green growth in the agro-food chain. The following issues will be addressed:

  • What is the role of private sector and joint private-public approaches in greening the agro-food sector?
  • What potential do new technologies hold, including biotechnologies, in increasing productivity (and reducing waste) in the agro-food sector in a sustainable manner?
  • What are the main obstacles to harnessing private-public partnerships and joint approaches?

 Luncheon: Side-event organized by the International Fertiliser Association and BIAC

We wish to draw your attention to a side-event hosted by the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA) and BIAC entitled “Fertilizing Crops to Improve Human Health”. This side-event, held over a luncheon in the OECD Chateau, will last a little over an hour and will take place during the lunch break of the OECD/BIAC workshop. It will feature presentations by three distinguished panel speakers:

  • Ismail Cakmak (Sabanci University, Turkey),
