2021 Global Agricultural Productivity Report (GAP Report) Launch Event

Register today for the 2021 GAP Launch!

The climate for sustainable agricultural growth must be strengthened. Producers need improved inputs and agronomic information to adapt to the changing climate and extreme weather events. To achieve this, the policy and investment climate must prioritize productivity growth at all scales of production.

The launch of the 2021 GAP Report will feature a panel of global experts and producers for a solution-oriented discussion examining:

  • the relationship between productivity, sustainability, and climate change,
  • accelerating productivity growth - examples of what works, and
  • scaling up solutions - implications for policy, partnerships, and research priorities.

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Jehiel Oliver, CEO, Hello Tractor
  • Jim Gaffney, General Development Officer, Center for Agriculture Led Growth, USAID
  • Siboniso Moyo, Deputy Director General for Research and Development, International Livestock Research Institute
