Cracking the Nut 2017: Reinforcing Food Systems to Meet Urban Demand

Date: 27-28 March, 2017
Location: Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand

Cracking the Nut 2017 will provide a demand-driven, collaborative learning space where participants share experiences and best practice information on programs, methodologies, strategies and tools; network to build partnerships; and gain new technical capacities to build the fields of sustainable energy, agriculture, food processing and distribution, and access to finance. 

This two-day learning event will raise awareness of the changing demographics impacting global demand and supply of food, and highlight how food systems are transforming, linking rural to urban markets, and responding to changing food preferences, especially in urban areas of developing countries. See the agenda

In 2017, the conference will highlight the multiple ways in which the private sector, governments, donors and development practitioners are working to improve food security, adjust systems and adapt finance for urban agriculture and sustainable energies.
