In the continuity of its aim to nurture the debate on agriculture and environment, the Forum warmly welcomes the IUCN and its globally recognized expertise in sustainable systems management and nature conservation. The Forum’s team is looking forward to this fruitful and complementary collaboration for the upcoming Regional Forum in France (December 2, 2021) and the Forum’s 2022 Annual Conference in the Brussels Square Meeting Center (March 15, 2022).

IUCN join our existing partners who work together with our founding partners under the guidance of the chairman to enable the strategic development of the Forum and help to shape its annual work program. The partners also act as a sounding board and provide counsel on our thought leadership activities and positions. In addition, the partners exchange knowledge and expertise on what works on the ground, constructively challenge each other, as well as other stakeholders in their community, to help create a more sustainable food system.

"IUCN recognises the need and is committed to engaging and involving all stakeholders in the transition to sustainable agriculture. By joining the ForumforAg, we will seek to address the urgent need to change our food and farming systems to tackle both the climate and biodiversity crises." – Alberto Arroyo Schnell, Head of Policy and Programme, IUCN European Regional Office.

Janez Potočnik, Chairman of the Forum, declares: “IUCN is a global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it. A partner fitting well into the Forum’s mission and activities. We welcome them in joining forces for the future we want.”
