able to confer on its causes, impact and
implications.  The WAF seeks to create awareness

agriculture plays in rural and economic
development, and ultimately, national security to
most every economy in the world.  Developing
countries and advocacy organizations are given an
equal voice on the world stage.

The WAF is the recognized global organization
that brings world leaders together from across
value chains and between public and private
sectors and civil society to promote a food secure

It is with regret that the Board of the World Agricultural Forum announces the termination of its activities.  
The Articles of Termination and Articles of Dissolution were filed with the Missouri Secretary of State on
November 14, 2018.

The Board in considering all options looking forward, concluded that the ever-changing and improving
methods of electronic communication which simply did not exist when the Corporation was set up in 1997,
had changed the outlook for the work carried out by the Corporation which was managed largely by
volunteers giving of their time and support.   

The Board wishes to thank all those who have been involved in any way with the World Agricultural Forum
over its twenty-one years, for their diligent and unbending support.  The Corporation became a recognised
global force for the discussion of issues around agriculture and provision of food to the world in the face of
an increasingly faster growing population.  Your input was key to that success.  It is now up to others to
pursue this course and we wish them every success.
