Introduction


The 3rd Global Conference follows the first and second Global conferences which were held in 2010 and 2012 in The Netherlands and Viet Nam, respectively. Due to their global scope, the Global International Conferences offer a unique opportunity for networking, sharing of experiences and expertise and creating new partnerships with colleagues from around the world.

If you are working on various aspects of how agriculture, food and nutrition security are/will be affected by climate change and how agriculture contributes to the climate change problem, then this is the opportunity to share your experience with the global audience. The Conference will be attended by more than 200 global leaders and professionals.

Presenting a Poster provides an opportunity to:

  • Promote your work and activities to an engaged audience;
  • Personally contribute to the conference debates;
  • Be involved in a movement bigger than this Conference as one of the overriding objective of the 3rd Global Conference is to promote a global climate-smart agriculture alliance.
