The Minister of Agriculture is participating at the conference of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN (FAO)
The Minister of Agriculture Helir-Valdor Seeder is participating today at the FAO Regional Conference for Europe in Baku and will give a speech there.
The conference will give an overview on the last session of the food security committee and its reform and discuss the priorities of the European region for the near future.
“The FAO has been successful in recent years in bringing the issues of food and agriculture to the center of global attention,” said Seeder. “This is inevitable in a situation, where world population is fast growing; there are severe food crises and human activities cause pressure on nature and natural resources.”
The question of feeding the world is not only connected to producing food and the agricultural sector. According to Seeder, the two most efficient means for feeding the world are the level of education, which enables to use scientific achievements and innovative solutions to develop the agricultural sector and a stable, sustainable economic environment, which ensures growth also in the food-producing sector.
The Minister will also participate at the roundtable for agriculture ministers with the theme “The future of world food and agriculture 2050”.
