This panel discussion, followed by a networking reception, will present examples of how changes to how we produce, manage and think about food & farming can maximise benefits for people & planet, and why this is an essential competent of achieving the Paris Agreement.

· Jenny Gilruth, Minister for International Development and Europe (Scottish Government)
