Advancing Sustainable Animal Products - ASAP!
The digital conference Advancing Sustainable Animal Products on the 2nd of December 2020 brings together Northwest European parties that work in and around the food value chain. The conference was an initiative from the Netherlands and was prepared well in advance with allies like the Danish veterinary authorities, Danish companies and NGOs.
Purpose of this cooperation is to ensure just payment for doing the right thing; producing sustainable animal products, possibly through a system of labelling.
Agriterra – together for development
Cooperatives and farmer organisations in developing countries are becoming more professional through the commitment of Agriterra, which provides a powerful socio-economic boost in countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Agriterra, international specialist in cooperative development and the Danish Agriculture and Food Council (DAFC) / SEGES will be working together on sustainable intensive agricultural production as a solution to the climate challenge. The two partners have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), a kind of gentlemen's agreement, on transfer of Danish knowhow and technology solutions to developing countries, and facilitating accreditation of an agricultural entity to the Green Climate Fund (GCF). Danish & Dutch expertise and technology offer potential for sustainable intensification of agriculture in emerging economies. “Agriterra and DAFC / SEGES share a joint vision to promote sustainable intensive agricultural production as a solution to the climate challenge."
