Fiji is presiding over COP23 in Bonn with the support of the Government of Germany. The conference is expected to draw nearly 20,000 participants from government, intergovernmental organisations, UN agencies, NGOs and civil society.
The first two days (11 - 12 November) will be an exclusive IAEG-SDGs members meeting, while the final two days (13 - 14 November) are a plenary session, where countries non-members of the IAEG, international organizations and other stakeholders are welcome to attend.
The conference will combine research presentations and debates, with a multi-sectoral focus encompassing health, food security, care practices, water and hygiene. The two debates on research operational challenges and research uptake will offer a space for discussion and experiences sharing.
The Conference is a policy and learning event whose goal is to deepen capacity for land policy in Africa through improved access to knowledge and information on land policy development and implementation.
Since the historic first Africa-EU Summit in Cairo in 2000, where the Africa-EU partnership framework was established, considerable change has taken place on both continents, which challenge the way Africa and Europe perceive each other.
The conference will look into the possible ways to use the SDGs to help address global agriculture issues. Additionally, different panels will focus on the European common agricultural policy reform and the specific issues within the Bulgarian agriculture landscape.
