We are delighted to announce that we will be attending European Development Days, organized by the European Commission and being held from 3-4th June, 2015 in Brussels.

We will be hosting a side event on ‘Smallholder farmers, powering global development’ as well as running an information booth about CABI’s work and the activities of our Plantwise programme which helps farmers to lose less of what they grow.

If you are attending the conference, do come and say hello at our stand F7 and join our side event – we would be delighted to see you.

Details of our session:

‘Smallholder farmers, powering global development’

500 million smallholder farmers feed 2/3rds of the world’s 7 billion people. Ensuring they can access the knowledge, skills and tools they need is essential to food security and to development, now and in the future. The session will look at what is being done today and what more can be done.

When: 18.00 – 19.15, 3rd June 2015

Where: S1, Tour & Taxis – Avenue du Port/ Haveniaan 86 C B-1000 Brussels
