The working groups of the Global Responsibility Platform link the different fields of expertise of the member organisations and encourage structured debates. The knowledge of the experts in the member organisations forms the basis for developing positions and is also a fundamental pillar in the work of the umbrella association.
Their work includes elaborating political statements relating to current issues, preparing advocacy activities, and exchanging information and expertise.
The working group for agriculture and development focuses on substantive discussion and elaborating recommendations. Their work mainly concentrates on agricultural matters which relate to the Sustainable Development Goals, and the Austrian and European agriculture policies from a development policy point of view. Essential to the work is the support of sustainable smallholdings and sustainable food systems.
