Event summary: Agri4D brings together researchers, policy makers and practitioners to engage actively with the challenges of food systems.

The digital Agri4D 2021 conference “Food Systems for New Realities” is open for registration. On 28-30 September, the Agri4D 2021 conference will gather people dedicated to agriculture for development from across the world. The focus of this year’s conference is how we can shape sustainable and just food systems that are resilient to new realities.

To progress towards sustainable and just food systems, Agri4D will bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners to engage actively with the challenges of food systems. The conference aims to be a platform to take stock of the current knowledge frontier, connect science to policymaking and practice, and spark new collaborations, and to create a space for researchers, practitioners and policy makers to discuss the state of our food systems, to identify what is working, where the gaps are and to raise awareness about challenges and solutions based on scientific knowledge.

Every two years, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and the Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI), bring researchers and practitioners together during the Agri4D conference. The main focus this year will be on how we can address the urgent challenges posed by the pandemic, climate changes, and other global crises that rapidly change our societies. 

Register to join SLU and SIANI online 28-30 September. SweDev will participate with a digital exhibition during the conference.
