“Factoring Young Voices to address Critical Challenges” a report on YPARD representative’s perspective on Science Forum 2011
The Science Forum with focus on the ‘Agriculture-Environment nexus’ was held on 17-19 October 2011 and provided a good overview on the spread of activities, involvement and focus of Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research (CGIAR) and its umbrella organisation to addressing this interface. Point of view of experts outside CGIAR such as Asian Foresight Institute, Universities and think tanks was complimentary to understand the role, spread, significance of agriculture-environment nexus in conjunction with a bigger sustainable development domain. The persity of discussions on current trends of food security, agro biopersity, climate challenges, advocacy and capacity strengthening to mobilise dissemination of scientific outputs and emphasis on impact assessment covered a wide facet of issues that require priority attention and innovative approaches.
