13 December Annual meeting in Katowice (Poland)

It’s nearly here: as previously announced, the Initiative’s annual meeting will be held on  13 December at the University of Silesia in Katowice, alongside the 24th Conference on Climate Change (COP24: 3-14 December). This is the second “day” to be held by the Initiative, the first being in Bonn in November 2017. The day will fall into two sections: a plenary session in the morning and early afternoon where experiences of the land will be presented (Third Partners’ Forum); this will be followed in the late afternoon by the fourth general meeting of the Consortium (this is open to members only). A poster session will be held in parallel.

The Day will be preceded by a meeting of the Technical and Scientific Committee (11 and 12 December).

All members and partners (remember that the SIP Forum has been an official partner of the Initiative since its creation in 2015) are invited to take part. Registration is essential.

We would like to draw readers’ attention to two events at COP24 jointly organized by the  4per1000 Initiative. The first, held on 4 December with the CGIAR, is called ” Transforming food systems under a changing climate: From priorities to action”, while the second on 11 December has the title “Soils advantage: Transforming agriculture by recarbonizing the Earth’s soil”.

Any of our readers wishing to attend any of these events are invited to sign up on the Initiative’s website.
