Montpellier Panel

Glasshouse launched the 2013 Montpellier Panel report, ‘Sustainable Intensification – A New Paradigm for African Agriculture’, written by a prestigious panel of agriculture experts including Professor Sir Gordon Conway, Director of Agriculture for Impact, a leading development policy initiative at Imperial College London.

Implementation:

The team were asked to improve understanding of sustainable intensification, in order to better inform policy thinking and debate on the topic in the media and global policy-making communities.

To achieve this, the report was translated into engaging articles and opinion pieces.  Interviews were also secured for Agriculture for Impact representatives with key media.

Impact:

  • Glasshouse achieved positive coverage across top-tier media, including The Guardian, BBC World Focus on Africa and Nature.
  • Such coverage helped to generate a new, more balanced dialogue around sustainable intensification and associated issues.
