The path to resilient agriculture in Latin America, Central America, the Caribbean and New Zealand

Accelerating progress through cooperation. “He waka eke noa”





Future provision of animal protein (meat and dairy) is today one of the most widely discussed topics in the world order. Meat and milk supply chains are vital for Latin America, the Caribbean and New Zealand.

Seeking to support increasingly resilient, sustainable and inclusive livestock farming and highlighting the importance of investment in science and innovation and the promotion of inter-institutional collaboration, FONTAGRO, IICA, the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases and the Government of New Zealand open the dialogue and invite sector leaders to share their points of view.
