The two-day National Conference on Agriculture, Land & Forests: Perspectives On The Crisis And Policy Alternatives brought together social movements, civil society networks, researchers and academics to better understand the global and national context of the crisis facing the agriculture, land and forest sectors. During the Conference, experts and representatives from social movements and trade unions focused on assessing the adequacy and effectiveness of government policies linked to agriculture, food, land, forestry, digitalisation and climate in responding to the needs of small-scale food producers, workers, adivasis and forest dwellers. They critically examined the global developments such as the recent negotiations at international institutions such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the contexts of the G20 Summit, Indo Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) and Free Trade Agreements (FTAs). Part A of the report captures these reflections and critical analysis. Part B captures the focused discussions on the sectors of Agriculture and Forests that brought out some key issues and a set of recommendations in terms of way forward from the current crisis which are summarised in Part C of the report.
