Sustainable management of natural resources is a priority for CAP 2014-2020. Agricultural sustainability and food security are key aims of the new Food-KIC 2016 and Europe’s policy framework on food security in developing countries, to which we contribute in part via our Intercontinental Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB) comprised of of experts from Canada, USA, Brazil, Croatia, India, Ghana and Australia. The ISAB is Chaired and Vice-chaired by two Case Study partners and the ISAB holds quarterly meetings.
