|About the World Agricultural Forum
The World Agricultural Forum (WAF) is a policy neutral and
internationally inclusive agriculture forum that brings together the
leaders from the private sector with policy makers and key policy
influencers to focus on providing food, fuel, fiber and water to the
world’s growing population.
The WAF believes that progress is best achieved when all
contributors to agriculturally -based food, fuel and fiber understand
change and are able to confer on its causes, impact and
implications. The WAF seeks to create awareness and educate all
stakeholders as to the critical role 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 world.
The WAF hosts a World Congress every 2 years
The next WAF World Congress is scheduled to be held in Sao Paolo,
Brazil in November 2015. The most recent Congress was held in
Hyderabad, India and attracted more than 1300 delegates.
