Celebrating the spirit of the International day of Women and Girls in Science in February, FAO and the World Food Forum will organize a hybrid event in Geneva to facilitate an exchange between FAO’s leaders and women in science who are developing innovative approaches, technologies and science to address the current global food challenges we face today.

Under the framework of the World Food Forum, FAO in Geneva is providing a platform for female scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University and SCOPE Zimbabwe to present their work on transforming the current agrifood systems.

This dialogue will also give the youth a rare opportunity to hear about the career experiences from the FAO Deputy Director-General and Chief Scientist.
