Experts' Meeting on “Climate Change – the Role of Food and Agricultural Trade”

December 9 , 2008

Poznan Poland

10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Significant research exists on the connections between climate change and agriculture. Only cursory treatment, however, has been given to the role of trade of food and agricultural products in this nexus, although it is a vast and important topic.  Experts at this meeting discussed pressing policy matters at the interface between climate change and agricultural trade with the aim of outlining priorities for research and analysis that contribute to finding effective solutions through international cooperation in the context of negotiations towards Copenhagen 2009 and beyond.
