A “Global Twitter Chat” around these questions will be held by the #GCARD3 Social Media Team. In the spirit of GCARD3 as a global and multi-stakeholder platform, this team represents several regions of the world and different domains of expertise related to agriculture: from food security and nutrition, environment and climate change, agro-ecology, youth empowerment and capacity development, communications and ICTs, anthropology to conflict resolutions and agribusiness – from research to practice. After their social media bootcamp in South Africa, the team kept their dialogue going on various social media platforms, and they decided to hold monthly Global Twitter Chats with a focus at Agriculture and Technology for development.
