- Impact Area
Partners of the International Pavilion celebrated food and its centrality to human and planet health.
On the heels of the 43rd edition of the Meeting di Rimini 2022, the Alliance/CGIAR reflects on the key outcomes of the four-day event, taking place on 20-25 August. The Meeting di Rimini is an annual international summer festival, gathering multi-stakeholder actors for change including representatives of religions and cultures, managers, heads of institutions, intellectuals, scientists, and artists. The Meeting for Friendship Amongst Peoples Foundation established this event aimed at offering an open forum for dialogue and knowledge exchange on critical current issues to promote cultural and social development as well as foster solidarity among peoples. This year’s Meeting di Rimini returned attendance to pre-pandemic levels, counting 800,000 visitors on premises, 3,000 volunteers, and 400+ journalists responsible for the 4,700 media outputs.
The Alliance/CGIAR featured in the 5,000 square meters International Pavilion, organized and coordinated by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and offered to other partners alongside UN FAO, Coldiretti, CIHEAM Bari, Agenzia Italiana per la Cooperazione allo Sviluppo (AICS), and Save the Children. The International Pavilion provided a space dedicated to enhancing international cooperation in tackling global challenge, allowing partners to engage with numerous visitors and organizations to create opportunities for knowledge exchange and encourage them to continue to foster multi-stakeholder dialogues.
