Life is based on what we produce and consume. Politics exist to find ways to do both better. Cities are growing, the world population continues to increase. Fighting hunger and malnutrition is getting more difficult. Our resources are decreasing; We are looking to a future where it is destroyed or even destroyed as a result of climate change or wrong practices.
We do not have sufficient awareness and knowledge of our agricultural assets; We do not recognize the correct usage and processing methods. The farmer cannot produce value for the society and the future beyond providing for himself; he cannot deliver his job to his children without keeping his eyes behind. The consumer cannot access nutritious food safely and continuously at affordable costs. In the agriculture and food sector, we are far from productivity in the targeted quantity and quality.
There are problems, we are aware. But the main issue is that we know that these can be solved with the right method and rational policies. It does not expect solutions only from those who have word and authority; We create opportunities to contribute and expand horizons in this way. With this understanding, we have again rolled up our sleeves to realize the third of our traditional “Agriculture and Food Policies Conference”. You are also invited to this great meeting that will take place in Adana on 5-6 November, do not forget to record the date now.
