The main theme.

Sustainability, in all its forms, will be the main theme of this Edition. And a new "Prix Italia - IFAD - Copeam Special Award" will also be dedicated to Sustainability, which will select the best program dedicated to the problems affecting rural communities in developing countries: namely food security, women's emancipation, youth unemployment, the impacts of COVID-19, climate change and subsequent adaptation, loss of biodiversity, hunger and nutrition, indigenous peoples, poverty, migration and conflict.
