New at IFAJ
China is a vast and very interesting country. Eleven journalists from ten countries around the world experienced that during eight days in the Beijing, Changzhou and Shanghai areas in late September 2016. We met farmers, farm workers, coop members and staff from distributors and companies like AGCO (sponsor of the whole tour) and DeLaval.
On 16 October 1945, 42 countries assembled in Quebec, Canada, to create the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Their goal was to free humanity from hunger and malnutrition, and to effectively manage the global food system – more information on FAO’s origin is available here.
Green Week is committed to support individual members of IFAJ who will attend the International GreenWeek. It is offering to arrange accreditation, enable access to press conferences, provide tickets for exclusive events, such as the opening ceremony, and provide press material online which can be used by journalists for coverage.
Partnership with UN Food and Agricultural Organisation
The UN Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) and IFAJ join forces to promote wider global sharing of agricultural information. The partnership aims at enhancing knowledge exchange and content publishing related to global hunger and food security, nutrition, sustainable development and the responsible management of fishery and forestry resources, among other issues. In this presentation you will find what FAO can offer IFAJ journalists.
