The European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development is to host a 10-member panel discussion focussed on the theme: Innovative Ways for Sustainable Nutrition, Food Security and Inclusive Agricultural Growth. “Food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture are among the EU’s top development priorities for the period of 2015–2020. In this regard, research and innovation are fundamental pieces to achieve food and nutrition security goals,” says an event announcement. “The EU is launching four major initiatives to support partner countries in food security and agriculture specifically addressing the key areas of innovation, nutrition, resilience and financing.” [Image credit: Flickr/Sébastien Bertrand]
