70 delegates from 37 countries – more than ever before – met in Oxford at CABI’s 18th Review Conference on 27-28 June to agree research priorities aimed at protecting the global food supply.
The theme of the event was ‘growing to the global challenge: creating a sustainable future’, and followed on from CABI’s Regional Consultations. It outlined how we plan to address the shared priority areas of our Member Countries by delivering practical, on the ground programmes – growing our work together.
At the last two Review Conferences (2009 and 2011) we highlighted the challenges the world is facing in addressing food security in a changing climate and CABI’s contribution to these issues over 100 years of scientific endeavour around the world. In 2013 we looked to the future – focussing on ‘growing’ solutions together to address needs, and the challenges we face in agriculture, trade and in improving livelihoods sustainably.
