In line with the general concept of the Annual General Assemblies of the Global Donor Platform for Rural Development (knowledge creation and sharing, advocacy and networking), this AGA 2016 aims to provide space for increasing knowledge on trade opportunities for agriculture and rural development (ARD) and to share with the trade community the policy priority of ARD.

Agricultural trade and market access based on enhanced value-chain development and agri-business of any scale can only successfully the ARD agenda if the common understanding on economic viability, environmental sustainability and social stability is increase within the two communities.

The results of this AGA – as every year – will inform the further work of the Platform’s Trade and Private Sector Group as well as the work carried out under the Strategic Initiative 2030 on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs and Finance for Development outcomes).

ECDPM has contributed to the preparations of this event.
