Ramat Gan, Israel

A High-Level Expert Group Meeting on Using Green Agriculture to Stimulate Economic Growth and Eradicate Poverty is being co-organized by the Government of Israel, through MASHAV (Israel?s Agency for International Development Cooperation) and the Ministry of Agriculture, and the Rio+20 Secretariat in Ramat Gan, Israel from 25 to 27 October 2011. It will contribute to preparations for the Rio+20 Conference.

The purpose of this High-Level Expert Group Meeting is to raise awareness of the central role that green and sustainable agriculture can play to stimulate economic growth and combat poverty through the sharing of know-how, best practices and lessons learned. The focus will revolve around four main topics: mobilizing large and small-scale farmers, macroeconomic policies for green agriculture, agricultural food production and the environment, and identifying stakeholders in agriculture.

The Expert Group Meeting will constitute a contribution to the preparations for Rio+20, by exploring the importance of green agriculture in ensuring food security, mitigating and adapting to climate change, and stimulating economic growth in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication.
