NWO-WOTRO cordially invites you to the second online NL-CGIAR ‘Food Fight’ which focuses on smallholder diversity in agricultural research for development. This is part of a debate series of three online NL-CGIAR ‘Food Fights’. For each of these events, two experts from the NL-CGIAR research programme will act as the proponent and opponent of a provocative statement on global food security, following from the NL-CGIAR synthesis study. The audience will be invited to respond to the debaters and contribute to an in-depth discussion.
The Food Fights are organised in the run-up to and during the NL-CGIAR conference (2 & 3 November 2022).
