G7 Agriculture Ministers met in Stuttgart, Germany May 13 & 14, 2022.
Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Marie-Claude Bibeau addressed Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
"To help reduce price volatility and fight global hunger, I announced Canada will double its funding to the Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS), of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization the FAO. This investment will give countries new information about fertilizers...and other inputs to more effectively navigate global agricultural markets in times of crises. Germany and the United States have also officially followed suit and other countries are preparing to do so."
Bibeau also talked about the need for resilient food systems.
"While responding to the invasion of Ukraine, G7 Ministers also stressed that we must continue to work towards sustainable and resilient agriculture and food systems globally. The world must produce more food in a manner that is sustainable environmentally, economically, and socially. Resilient food systems are essential to ensuring global food security and nutrition. Focusing on the need to increase productivity and leveraging innovative ideas to support farmers will be key to achieving this goal."
