Highlights the centrality of science, technology and innovation for agrifood systems transformation. The event will embrace a diversity of perspectives based on science, thereby facilitating rationalization and inclusiveness of debate.

More specifically, the objectives are to:
  • Explore scientific and technological advances and associated risks and opportunities;
  • Share science- and evidence-based options for more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems;
  • Analyze options for strengthening science and evidence-based decision-making;
  • Assist countries in making informed decisions regarding the co-creation, adaptation and adoption of appropriate and context-specific technologies and innovations;
  • Promote effective science communication, including by engaging on contentious issues.

The Science and Innovation Forum will be designed over five days at FAO HQ and provide major stakeholders*, in particular from low and middle-income countries (LMICs), the space and opportunity to take stock of the science and evidence base and gaps, engage in dialogues and share experiences around science-based actions and innovative solutions. Roundtables, panel discussions, and various interactive formats will be utilized. The Forum will be preceded by independently organized side-events, with partners showcasing their innovations and insights.

* Including senior policy-makers, Permanent Representatives of Member States in Rome, international, regional and national research and development organizations, academic institutions, the private sector, development partners, youth, civil society and farmers’ organizations, among others.

  • Scientific and technological advances explored;
  • Options for science and evidence-based decision-making analyzed;
  • Options for more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems shared;
  • Countries supported in making informed decisions;
  • Effective science communication promoted.
