In light for the Post-2015 Development Agenda
About the Series of Seminars (Spanish)
The IICA Office in Brazil, the IICA Office in the United States, and the Center for Strategic Analysis for Agriculture (CAESPA) have created an opportunity for dialogue in the Americas regarding agricultural policies through a series of virtual policy seminars. The objective of this dialogue is to support IICA’s member countries in defining their agricultural policies, keyed to the construction of the post-2015 development agenda.
Agriculture has a major role to play in responding to the urgent need to strengthen food security, and to ensure inclusive economic and social development, and environmental sustainability, in line with the Millennium Development Goals and the discussions surrounding the post-2015 development agenda. Given the challenge of having policies and institutions consistent with the trends, challenges, and opportunities of the future, this policy seminar serves to establish a mechanism for dialogue among IICA’s member countries to facilitate awareness, analysis and identification of lessons that can be applied to the specific conditions of each country, based on a consideration of the changes under way in different regions and countries of the world.
This initiative is aligned with the new institutional priorities set forth in the IICA’s 2014-2018 Medium Term Plan and with IICA’s commitment to contribute to supporting the transformations needed to promote competitive, sustainable and equitable agriculture in the Americas.
