Queridos contertulios, creo que este congreso puede ser de interés para algunos de vosotros. Presentamos los últimos avances en la red AGRIS de FAO
Aunque es en inglés, habrá unas salas en otros idiomas como el espanol para recoger las inquietudes de cada una de las comunidades
Un abrazo y siento si me duplico

FAO recognizes that to defeat hunger and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)<http://newsletters.fao.org/c/146T3VGxDwwsCfc9patTDLq>, knowledge is key and sharing it is vital. As the world’s population grows, the climate changes and people increasingly migrate from rural areas to cities, global food and agriculture systems will need to transform to be able to provide everyone with enough safe and nutritious food.
Access to scientific knowledge, research and information about food and agriculture is crucial for this transformation to happen sustainably, in a way that safeguards both livelihoods and the environment. AGRIS promotes access to this knowledge, research and information.
Coordinated by FAO since 1974, AGRIS is a global information service that promotes free access to the knowledge needed to defeat hunger. AGRIS is composed of two main elements – a multilingual database and a network of organizations. The database contains 14 million bibliographic records on food and agricultural literature in more than 90 languages (as of June 2022) and is free-to-use via a search interface. A network of organizations, known as data providers, contributes the bibliographic information in the database, which is updated periodically.
