Global Donor Platform Dialogue

Food security and climate change

You are kindly invited to a Platform Dialogue with the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development in Stockholm on June 7. The Global Donor Platform for Rural Development (GDPRD or the Platform) is a network of all the major bilateral and multilateral donors and international financing institutions that share a common vision of the role that ARD (Agriculture and Rural Development) plays in reducing poverty. They are committed to achieving increased and more effective aid for agriculture and rural development. Sida is member of the GDPRD board and this Dialogue is a co-arrangement between the GDPRD, Sida and SIANI.

This is an unique opportunity to get to know the Platform. On June 7th the  Platform Dialogue Forum will first introduce the Platform’s work and then focus thematically on Food Security and Climate Change.  Melinda Fones-Sundell and Matthew Fielding will be moderating the session.  Please note, you must RSVP before the 1st June!
