Lack of access to data and limited transparency in production are hampering policy making and policy evaluation processes to develop sustainable agriculture and food systems.

The speakers will present two ongoing key initiatives, the Global Strategy to improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics (GSARS), led by FAO, and 50x2030 -a tri-party initiative of the World Bank, FAO and IFAD, working hand in hand to strengthen agricultural statistics systems in developing countries and address the agricultural data gap, setting the basis and providing the key tools to countries and the international community to address food security, achieve SDG 2 (Zero hunger) and monitor the impact of climate change on production and productivity as well as the adaptation strategies of the agricultural sector.
