The problematic of hunger has become increasingly recurrent, in spite of having declined in the past few years, according to information from the United Nations. One of the targets of the UN is to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in an attempt to eliminate hunger in the world. It is necessary to establish dialogs and to partner to reconsider currently applied practices and define new strategies. The 2019 Brazil Africa Forum, regarding this agenda, has become an important hub for reuniting people and organizations who are interested in modifying that reality.
This is the seventh edition of the event – taking place in São Paulo from November 12th to the 13th. There will be around 300 representatives from governments, private sectors, academic environments, and potential investors. “Food Security” is the main theme: a path toward economic growth”. The event seeks to provide the possibility to share experiences and discussion on new opportunities and the global impact thematic, all of these are linked to combating hunger.
Some of the ideas and experiences being shared during the course of the 2019 Brazil-Africa Forum include different types of knowledge related to the fields of innovation and technology, funding, training, green revolution, agriculture 4.0, rural development, nutrition, as well as the creation of employment, training focused on youth empowerment, active citizenship, digital inclusion, and entrepreneurship.
These themes will be discussed during the main sessions and also through performing parallel events led by strategic partners, and that will make it possible to achieve greater contact with participants, expanding possibilities, and partnerships.
