    WFF at Cibus 2021

    Purposefully organised as the official closing event of Cibus 2021, the International Food Exhibition, the WFF event focussed on important topics: "The challenges of climate, digital, and social transitions - Financial resources and the impact on the business sector - A focus on Italy" and will host a high level panel of speakers. The event continued and renewed the discussion around the key topics of sustainable growth in food and agriculture under discussion at the G20, in the Italian PNRR, and in many international panels. It also represented an ideal summary of all the topics and issues that involve the food system, both locally and internationally, in the public and private sectors. The Forum's vision is to engage and support Italian and international companies and stakeholders in order to provide an overall understanding of these key topics and their impact - poverty reduction, food safety and sustainability, social cohesion and community development, reduction of socio-economic differences, and regional, generational and gender gaps.
