Global and platform events

The members agreed on a new set of roles for the Platform: advocacy, knowledge-sharing and networking.

A central instrument in fulfilling these roles is the organisation and presence at events relevant to the aspirations of the Platform. In its mandate to champion rural development, the Platform organises events as a neutral convening space for members and partners to work together on issues of common interest, share experience and expertise and to network with other ARD professionals. With the Platform’s participation in international events, effective knowledge sharing and advocacy are ensured. In this Calendar you will find Platform-organised events, Platform governance-related meetings as well as an overview of major relevant international events. A special attention is paid to the Annual General Assembly, as the main event of the Platform, to CFS and the World Bank annual Land and Poverty Conference, where Platform members and the secretariat are always present.
