Dear Colleagues

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the IAPB congress website, thank you for taking the time to stop by. It seems almost trite to say that we are living in challenging times. Advances in science and technology have continued apace through the early parts of the 21st century, but still in our ‘global village’ millions of people go hungry every day with millions more suffering from the effects of ‘hidden hunger’.

Minister for Agriculture meets IAPB Team
