Welcome to AgriFoSe2030!

The AgriFoSe2030 programme targets the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 - "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture" in low-income countries. We synthesise and translate existing science into policy and practice, and develop capacity to achieve this.

Challenges

1. Improving access to safe and nutritious food

This challenge focuses on how households in poor communities can better access safe and nutritious food. It covers aspects of pre- and postharvest food loss, how to prevent food borne diseases and best ways to connect farmers to markets.

2. Agricultural productivity and ecosystem functions

The starting point of this challenge is in the dependence on well-functioning ecosystem services as a basis for sustainably increasing agricultural productivity. It looks at the hurdles, potentials and options for smallholders to increase farm productivity with minimal impact on the natural capital.

3. Science-based innovation and extension

A science-based extension service is crucial for improving smallholder productivity and profitability in a sustainable way. The focus of this AgriFoSe2030 challenge will be the “linkage problem” in the science – innovation – extension – adoption chain.

4. Smallholder agriculture within transforming food systems

Rapid urbanisation and expanding urban food markets provide opportunities for smallholder farmers to engage more with markets. The overall objective of this challenge is to translate science to inform policy and practice for rural-urban dynamics.

News and Events

Goats

Livestock management contribute to improved health among small-scale goat herds in Laos.

Smallholder goat farmers in Laos have adopted new goat management practices including approaches to fodder and animal health care. This change is supported by the AgrifoSe2030 project through emphasising knowledge sharing, skills-building, and mentorship. While farmers self-organise into groups to share knowledge, they also receive support from extension service providers.

Media engagement training for researchers

Agriculture for food security 2030 - Translating science into policy and practice

The AgriFoSe2030 programme targets the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 - "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture" in low-income countries. We synthesise and translate existing science into policy and practice, and develop capacity to achieve this.

The programme contributes to sustainable intensification of agriculture, increased market access for smallholders and strengthen the role of women and youth.
