Session Objectives

The E15 expert group on Agriculture Trade, Food Security and Sustainable Development, has identified innovative solutions to the urgent challenges facing the global food trading system. Leading experts and policymakers will discuss concrete options for a post-Bali programme on food security in the WTO. Any such programme will need to address urgent concerns emerging as a result of high and volatile food prices. An interactive exchange between panellists and the audience will help to gather insights for strengthening these initial policy proposals, on the understanding that a wide range of perspectives will help to build a more comprehensive and equitable outcome.
