The Initiative presented to FAO member countries at AFCAS 2019 and APCAS 2020

The 50x2030 Initiative was recently presented to countries taking part in the twenty-sixth session of the African Commission on Agricultural Statistics (AFCAS, 4-8 November 2019) and in the twenty-eighth session of the Asia and Pacific Commission on Agricultural Statistics (APCAS, 10-14 February 2020).

The two statutory body of FAO bring together their respective FAO member countries to review and exchange ideas on the state of food and agricultural statistics in the continent. The conferences represent an opportunity for member countries to receive advice on the development of their agricultural statistical systems.

The 50x2030 Initiative was presented during both conferences as it provides a unique opportunity for countries in these regions to improve their agricultural statistical system.
