The issue of trade and sustainability in agri-food systems has reached a critical juncture globally, marked by tension and competing visions. While agriculture can be a positive tool for sustainability, there are divergent perspectives on the role that trade plays and the varied approaches to improving sustainability. The May 2024 Farm Foundation® Forum, Global Ag Trade and Sustainability: Gaps and Opportunities, outlined some of the key debates happening in agri-food trade, and explore opportunities for better understanding of sustainability policies and goals which impact agricultural trade.

This Forum took place on May 14, at 9 a.m. Central via Zoom.
