The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Regional Office announces the 31st Regional Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean.
The 31th FAO Regional Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean will be held in Panama City, Panama, from the 26th to the 30th of April 2010. Delegations from all 33 Member States will participate, as well as NGOs, intergovernmental organisms, UN agencies, and observers.
The Regional Conference is held every two years and is the most important FAO regional forum, where the Organization’s activities are evaluated, and recommendations are made for the coming biannual period. The Conference also analyses the main challenges that both FAO and governments face, and it represents a valuable opportunity to establish high level dialogue on rural development, fisheries, forestry and food security and agriculture.
