    About the event

This session will bring together representatives from civil society, research, private sector, and government to reimagine the enabling environment for agricultural science. Science and innovation can play a critical role in transforming our food systems, and particularly in making our food systems more sustainable and climate resilient. However, research for agricultural development and innovation is often fragmented, overly supply-based and not sufficiently adapted to local circumstances, resulting in an implementation gap. At the same time, the policy and regulatory frameworks currently in place can hamper equal access to knowledge and technology transfers and disadvantage countries in the Global South.

In this session, we want to have a discussion between actors from across the governance structure (institutional, private sector and community) and research bodies and businesses engaged in agricultural innovations, with actors from the Global North and South, on how agricultural innovation can be better adapted to local circumstances and what enabling environments are needed for an inclusive, effective, and sustainable science mechanism.
