ABU DHABI: The Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) announced that the next session of the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture 2015 will host 300 top scientists and experts from 71 countries to discuss ways to tackle the world’s hunger and malnutrition challenges amid diminishing resources and climate change.

The second edition of the forum, which will be held in Abu Dhabi, will run from March 9-11, under the patronage of Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, Chairman of the ADFCA.

During the forum, the leading scientists will demonstrate areas where sustainable and smart agriculture can be practised. It is also an appropriate platform for exchanging views with local experts on future of food production and security.
