Accelerating Agricultural Productivity Growth For A Sustainable, Resilient World


The world’s food and agricultural systems are under severe stress from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, climate change, and COVID-19, with devastating impacts on food security.  Accelerating agricultural productivity growth is fundamental to meeting today’s challenges and building more sustainable, resilient systems to withstand challenges in the future.

At this hybrid event hosted by the Global Agricultural Productivity Initiative at Virginia Tech (GAP Initiative), the Coalition on Sustainable Productivity Growth for Food Security and Resource Conservation (SPG Coalition), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, policymakers, private-sector innovators, and research leaders will discuss the need to accelerate agricultural productivity growth and concrete actions to do so. The event will include the release of the 2022 Global Agricultural Productivity Report.
