There is no sustainable development without shared science

Building global knowledge partnerships in agriculture to implement the Sustainable Development Goals

Thursday, June 8, 2017 - 10:45 to 12:00
According to Sustainable Development Goal 17, a successful sustainable development agenda requires inclusive, multistakeholder partnerships. In the agricultural sector, structured knowledge platforms gathering political players, the private sector, civil society and research actors exist. Co-ownership, co-decision on the societal challenges to tackle, shared values and visions, and jointly committed resources are key characteristics. They cover a wide range of expertise, approaches and backgrounds and the impact of their activities stretches from the local to the national and regional scale. During the brainstorming session, participants will reflect on the expansion potential and sustainability of global knowledge partnerships for sustainable development in agriculture.
