The forum will be held from 23rd to 24th April 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland. The three United Nations bodies; Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Health Organization (WHO), World Trade Organization (WTO) will hold another forum in Geneva. The forum will be a continuation of the discussions held in the Addis Ababa Conference.
The Geneva Forum will focus on trade-related issues and challenges of food safety. The food safety priorities set by this Conference will facilitate global collaboration and help ensure that no one is left behind. It will provide an opportunity for contributors and participants to explore the challenges and opportunities arising from rapid technological change and digitalization.
The conference will result in a document summarizing key issues and recommendations from both, the Addis Conference and the Geneva Forum, to better align and coordinate efforts to strengthen food safety systems across sectors and borders.
