What does the webinar offer you?

This is the second webinar in a series of 4.

The first webinar provided an introduction to RBC in Sri Lanka. This webinar will take a closer look at the agri-food sector. It will show the benefits of 2 important concepts for both Dutch and Sri Lankan stakeholders.

The first concept is the payment of a living wage or living income to plantation workers and smallholder farmers in Sri Lanka.

The second concept is climate-smart farming or Agri-forestry. We look at how these approaches can help farmers, processors, and importers cope with the fast-changing climate. Speakers from the field will explain and give examples of both concepts.
