Global Farmer Roundtable – Third Session
How can farmers advocate effectively for the challenges they face and the opportunities they can realize?

The Global Farmer Roundtable gathers 14 farmers from around the world to discuss current issues in food and nutritional security. A diverse group, the invited farmers range from smallholder to larger farmer, they are opinion leaders, highly motivated, early information and technology adaptors who are willing to engage and be used as a resource to other farmers and the full food value chain.

During the facilitated Roundtable discussion, the invited farmers explore commonalities and discuss challenges they face as they work to maximize their farms productivity and profitability, highlighting the technologies, tools, practices and systems needed to confront these challenges in a sustainable manner.

The public is invited to observe the Global Farmer Roundtable discussion.
