José Graziano da Silva, Director General of the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations (FAO), said that the agricultural sector
must transform itself not only to achieve food and nutrition security for
all, but also to help address global challenges such as climate change and
antimicrobial resistance.

Speaking at the biannual meeting of FAO's Committee on Agriculture on
September 26, 2016 at the FAO Headquarters in Rome, the Director General
noted how "agriculture is at the very heart" of a recent series of
ground-breaking international agreements, including the Sustainable
Development Goals and the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

Another keynote speaker, Joachim von Braun, Director of University of Bonn's
Center for Development Research, underscored the need for scientific
innovation in agriculture to go hand-in-hand with policy reform. He told
participants that an International Panel on Food, Nutrition, and Agriculture
should be established to assist the international community.
