The initiative will forge links between the Government and the private sector, focusing on country and regional regulation in respect to seed, crop protection and crop nutrition innovations, providing for technology transfer, the need to increase agri-growth, enterprise-to-enterprise cooperation and joint ventures.

With support from the United Nations FAO, The World Bank Group, the Ministry of Agriculture and Embrapa, Challenge Advisory will be convening an extraordinary summit on the 21st & 22nd October 2015 in Rio De Janeiro. Focusing on the critical food security issues within Brazil and bringing together government Ministries, United Nation agencies and the private sector, debate will centre on policy, productivity and economic growth.

Following successful missions to Thailand, India and Tanzania, the summit will forge links between Brazilian government and private sector, focusing on country and regional regulation policy in respect to crop nutrition and protection, mechanisation, and bio innovation, providing a space for technology transfer, the need to increase agri-growth, enterprise-to-enterprise cooperation and joint ventures.

 

 

Challenge Advisory will be supported by Ministries from the government, Embrapa, FAO, The World Bank Group, BNDES, USAID, CONFESOL, IFAD and representatives from NGO agencies amongst many others.
