The 2022 FAO Science and Innovation Forum, hosted by the World Food Forum (WFF) and Hand-in-Hand Investment Forum will bring together different stakeholders, in particular from low and middle-income countries (LMICs), take stock of the science and evidence, engage in dialogues, roundtables, panel discussions and various interactive formats and share experiences around science-based actions and innovative solutions. 

The Steering Committee, chaired by the FAO Chief Scientist and comprised of renowned scientists, including Claudia Sadoff and Martin Kropff, provides thought leadership and acts as an advisory board to oversee the organization of the FAO Science and Innovation Forum. The discussions and dialogues build on the success of the July 2021 Science Days for the UN Food Systems Summit, organized by the UNFSS Scientific Group and FAO. 

More specifically, the objectives of the 2022 FAO Science and Innovation Forum are to:

  • Share robust science and evidence-based options for more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems. 
  • Assist countries in making informed decisions regarding the co-creation, adaptation and adoption of appropriate and context-specific technologies and innovations.
  • Explore scientific and technological advances and associated risks and opportunities.
  • Promote effective science communication, including by engaging on contentious issues.
  • Analyze options for strengthening science and evidence-based decision-making. 

Stay up to date with the latest information by following WorldFish and the hashtag #aquaticfoods to join the virtual dialogue on Twitter.

We look forward to your active participation.
