Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA)

The GFFA is an international conference on central issues of vital importance for global agricultural and food policies. It is held in Berlin on an annual basis at the same time as the International Green Week (IGW). The GFFA is hosted by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) in cooperation with the Berlin Senate, Messe Berlin GmbH and GFFA Berlin e.V.

The forum features a large number of events that provide an international audience of experts from the worlds of politics, industry, science, and civil society with an opportunity to address and reach consensus on issues and challenges relating to global agricultural policy and food security.

In the past, high-level keynote speakers such as António Guterres, Josefa Sacko, Angela Merkel, Ban Ki-moon, and Prince Charles joined the GFFA line-up.

Soil in Focus at 2022 GFFA

More than 90 percent of global food production depends on soil. It provides habitats for soil organisms and is the most important terrestrial carbon sink on earth. However, the quality of soils is increasingly deteriorating and fertile land is becoming scarcer.

This development must be halted by using land resources sustainably and preserving existing agricultural land. Only in doing so will we be able to feed the growing world population, stop climate change, and reduce the loss of biodiversity. There is an urgent need for the international community to develop and implement viable and practical solutions.

The 2022 GFFA is to provide key impetus to this end and promote international exchange. The four core questions will be:

  1. How can we improve soil protection?
  2. How can we restore degraded soils?
  3. How can we make the use of finite land resources more sustainable?
  4. How can farmers worldwide get fair access to land?
