The kick-off event marks the official start of the GFFA events. Guided by the motto “Sustainable Land Use: Food Security Starts with the Soil”, panelists from industry, science and politics will introduce the GFFA subject and its manifold aspects in a stimulating panel discussion.
At the 2020 GFFA, the focus was on trade. The side event will take stock after 2 years of progress and identify areas where action is still needed.
