International Workshop on Strengthening International Agribusiness Trade: Stakeholder Dialogue and Partnerships Towards SDGs

During the Rio20+ summit, United Nations Security Council attracted the world's attention towards one billion hungry people and initiated the zero-hunger challenge by urging all stakeholders of the agricultural supply chain including governments, farmers, businesses, scientists, civil society and consumers to work together and develop inclusive and sustainable food systems to eliminate food waste and ensure food security (UN, 2012). In light of achieving food security for the ever-growing world population, it is evident to have agricultural supply chain which is able to respond efficiently to global markets and at the same time withstand the pressures posed by changing climate. The workshop is designed keeping in view the challenges being faced by developing countries to meet the stringent standards laid down by markets in developed countries. At the same time, they face the challenges of feeding their own population in changing climate regime. In this context, Agricultural Education plays a crucial role in sustainable development.

The discussions in the workshop will be initiated against the backdrop of SDG 2 (End Hunger) SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 12 (Sustainable Consumption and Production). Goal SDG 2 aims at ending all forms of malnutrition and double agricultural productivity in the next 15 years. In the context of agribusiness supply chains, SDG 4 aims at achieving inclusive and quality education for all, which reaffirms that education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development. SDG 12 focuses to half down per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer level and reduce foodlosses along production and supply chains including post-harvest losses (Target Indicator 12.5).
