Caribbean Week of Agriculture will be held 4-8 October this year.

Activities during the premier event on the Region’s agriculture calendar will focus on the theme ‘Transforming our food systems’.

The week of activities will be done virtually this year as the region continues to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. CWA was last held in 2018 in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Preparations are underway for holding the events that will include a marketplace, statutory meetings of regional agriculture organisations, and a Meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED). There will also be webinars which will place the spotlight on creating resilience in the sector; rebounding from the pandemic; food security; climate change and enhancing intra-regional trade.
