Florence AGA 2014

//  Food Systems and Gender

The Florence Annual General Assembly was themed 'Food Systems and Gender - Women's empowerment for food security and nutrition.' This emphasis on the fundamental role of women was made because of their central role as smallholders in food and nutrition security as well as their contribution as entrepreneurs, development agents and policy makers. The AGA was hosted by MFAIC-Italy on 3-4 December.

The second day was a members only day, where Platform members discussed how to translate the acquired knowledge and the previous day’s results into policy and investment improvements as well as practical measures and actions.

//  Objectives

The objectives of the Annual General Assemblies of the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development (AGA) are to:

  1. Exchange knowledge amongst Platform members and partners on issues connected to agriculture, rural development and food and nutrition security, based on innovative and effective solutions for pressing problems of the world food system;
  2. Provide opportunities for networking to strengthen and build up partnerships between the donor community and industry, foundations, research institutions, policy makers, UN agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders that foster new ways of working together to support information dissemination and impact;
  3. Advocate outcomes and central messages from the event to key stakeholders in a manner that creates impact.
