The Yale Club of New York City

The International Agri-Food Network partnered with a number of leading organizations to host “Agriculture and Food Day to Implement the Sustainable Development Goals”, which was held at the Yale Club in New York City on July 13.

The event raised awareness of the critical need for investment in Goal 2 on ending hunger and its interlinkages with the other SDGs under focus during the High Level Political Forum, held at the United Nations in New York the same week.

The day included a thematically-focused plenary session with high-level speakers including high-ranking UN diplomats, a series of roundtable discussions on interlinkages in SDGs, and a dynamic luncheon featuring youth in agriculture.
