Rome-based international agencies are jointly organizing a 3-day Knowledge Share Fair to showcase success stories and learn from each others good practices and experience. The open-house event will provide an extensive insight into the agencies’ many efforts and related activities in the field of agricultural development and food security.

The Fair will be a platform for people from different agencies to informally and openly discuss their personal experiences and lessons learned, to build networks and to share knowledge and information using modern web-based communication tools. It is the first time that an event of this nature has been organized by the participating agencies.

The Fair is jointly organised by Bioversity International, the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP).

More information and the schedule of this innovative event can be found on the Share Fair website at

Video-feeds and blogging will make it possible to follow and participate in the event online.
