This international technical webinar is part of the series organized by the FAO elearning Academy, Agreenium (l'Institut agronomique, vétérinaire et forestier de France) and UN ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific). These webinars are an opportunity for all of us to share experiences and lessons learnt, discuss challenges, and propose innovative solutions and models. They aim to provide a holistic and comprehensive view of current trends in thematic areas related to global challenges, by combining development research and innovation perspectives.
