The Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) is an annual event, held in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi. Established in 2014, GFIA – which includes a the three-day conference and two day exhibition – is now into its second year and will take place from 9-11 March at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

Organised by Turret Media, GFIA 2015 has been widely recognised as a leading platform dedicated to advancing innovation-led solutions to agricultural challenges. GFIA 2015 is a congregation of the world’s leading academics, technologists and agricultural experts to discuss and advance solutions to the world’s pressing food challenge.

The 2015 edition of the event will take place under the theme ‘Climate Smart Agriculture’, and include among its key highlights the second meeting of the UN Global Alliance for Climate Smart Agriculture, as well as the first ever Zayed Agricultural Prize for Innovation.

“As the world looks to support sustainable economic and social development into the 21st century and beyond, the solutions we identify to our food and water security challenges today will define the future of our nations,” said Mohamed Jalal Al Rayssi, Chairman of the Organising Committee, at Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority.

“Furthermore, with climate-smart food production being a critical factor for the UAE and other water-constrained parts of the MENA region. Abu Dhabi is strongly committed to driving the global dialogue on food security and climate resilience and this event reinforces that commitment. We look forward to welcoming some of the world’s leading experts in this field.”

“GFIA is unique in that it attracts all the players – from across the full food value chain – needed to effect real change in the way we feed the world,” said Mohamed Jalal Al Rayssi.

“From policy-makers and governments to food producers, commercial organizations, bilateral and multilateral development agencies and investors, GFIA is a stage that helps actualize real progress. This harmonization approach is essential if we are to meet the challenge of feeding a rapidly growing global population.”

The second edition of GFIA will also include newly-launched ‘Hosted Scientist Programme’ an initiative that will assemble 300 of the world’s leading scientists in Abu Dhabi, to establish a scientific crucible for discussion, knowledge sharing and the advancement of research.
