The State of Food and Agriculture

Investing in Agriculture for a Better Future

Heads of State and Government and high-level representatives from countries and organizations gathered at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in June 2012 to declare a common commitment to ensuring the promotion of an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future for our planet and for present and future generations. Agriculture and hunger eradication have also taken their rightful place as one of the top priorities on the international agenda.
