If we are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals we are going to have to step up our efforts in agri-food research and innovation, to turn knowledge into impact.
The Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD) was created to bring together science and society to transform agri-food research and innovation around the world.
GCARD is about promoting investment and building partnership, capacities and mutual accountabilities at all levels of the agri-food system.
