IFOAM EU Conference: Resource Efficiency and Food Security


Resource efficiency is identified as one of seven flagship initiatives by the European Commission under the EU 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Recent reports by the International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) and the European Commission Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) have clearly underlined the challenges across the entire food chain, the necessary changes required and the potential for investment in agro-ecological approaches for food security in a resource scarce world. Working in accordance with agro-ecological principles, sustainable agricultural systems, including organic agriculture, have much potential to contribute to a more resource efficient Europe.
The IFOAM EU Conference “Resource Efficiency and Food Security: Opportunities and Challenges for Sustainable Food Systems” will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 9 November 2011. The conference will deal with the following key features: examination of the relationship between resource efficiency and food security and of the role of system approaches to sustainable food and farming (with global experts and regional speakers), knowledge sharing, exchange of ideas and development of solutions, and meetings with key decision-makers and high-level stakeholders. The draft programme for the conference is available here
