The panel was an opportunity for Australian and EU farmers and policy makers to showcase world-leading sustainable and resilient agricultural practices. Farmers from Australia and the EU presented how they have had to innovate to adapt and thrive when facing challenging climatic conditions. They stressed the importance of providing farmers with the necessary tools by investing in research and development and by cooperating internationally to share knowledge and best practice. Panellists also underlined the importance of a stable regulatory environment, with decisions based on science, and of maintaining free and fair global trade. Agriculture, panellists agreed, will continue to play a vital role in providing the world with nutritious food and doing so in a way that looks after and improves nature and the environment.
