Berlin Agriculture Ministers’ Conference

The Berlin Agriculture Ministers’ Conference, which will be held on 28 January 2022 the last day of the GFFA conference and will again be the political highlight of the GFFA.

It is the world’s largest conference of agriculture ministers, attended by around 70 agriculture ministers. High-level representatives from more than ten international organisations, such as the FAO, UNCCD, WTO and World Bank, also attend the conference.

At the conference, the agriculture ministers formulate a common political position on the respective GFFA subject in the Final Communiqué, which has to date always been unanimously adopted. These results are fed into the further international discourse on agricultural policy. On 25 January 2022, the final communiqué will be negotiated at higher working level in a virtual Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM), after countries have had the opportunity to comment on the draft in writing.

The Berlin Agriculture Ministers’ Conference will be held virtually again due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The opening of the ministers’ conference is open to the public and can be followed by everyone via livestream on the GFFA Platform.

The opening will start at 12 p.m. CET on 28 January 2022 and last for around 30 minutes.

It will inter alia contain the opening speech from Federal Minister Özdemir and speeches from EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Janusz Wojciechowski, Chair of UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) Gabriel Ferrero and Deputy Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Jean-Marie Paugam.
