Food Systems Transformation:
A Worldwide Response to Multiple Crisis

The 2023 GFFA will also focus on the war in Ukraine

The BMEL’s Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) is the international conference on agri-food policy issues. It has taken place in Berlin at the beginning of the International Green Week for the past 15 years. In 2022, the conference was again held virtually due to the pandemic. This time, from 18 January to 21 January 2023, it will once again take place physically, in the City Cube and other venues in the Berlin exhibition grounds.

Topic of the 2023 GFFA: Food Systems Transformation: A Worldwide Response to Multiple Crisis

It is already evident that the next GFFA will also focus on the war in Ukraine. Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified attack on Ukraine has directly affected global food systems – it has led to considerable price hikes for grain all over the world, especially for wheat and maize. This is causing problems, especially for developing and newly industrialised countries that import food.

At the 2023 GFFA, about 2,000 international visitors from political, economic, scientific and civil society backgrounds will meet to discuss different aspects of the GFFA topic. The world’s largest informal Conference of Agriculture Ministers will take place on Saturday, the final day of the conference. It constitutes the political highlight of the GFFA. During this conference, about 70 agriculture ministers from all around the world will adopt a joint political communiqué. High-level representatives from more than ten international organisations, such as the FAO, OECD, WTO and World Bank, will also attend the conference.

Many of the GFFA events, including 16 expert panels, a science slam and the opening event, will be open to the public. Attendance is free of charge. Please make a note of the date for the 2023 GFFA and consider subscribing to the GFFA newsletter.

We look forward to seeing you!
