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 with a focus on low-income contexts in a globalised world.
This year, the focus is on how we can shape sustainable and just food systems that are resilient to new realities.
Topic 1: Justice in Food Governance calls for work on social and environmental justice in food systems with special attention to questions of gender, social marginalisation and intersectionality.
Topic 2: Towards Improved Food and Nutrition Security from Smallholder-inclusive Food Systems looks closer at the roles of smallholders, producers and consumers within inclusive food systems.
Topic 3: Agroecology focuses on economic, environmental and social sustainability, resource use, ecological interactions, and interactions between different actors in the food system.
Topic 4: Closing the Loop – Making Food Systems Circular focuses on waste reduction, management and utilisation, including drivers for change from linear to circular systems.
Topic 5: Innovation and Innovative Approaches focuses on how technical, social and organisational innovations can enable development towards Agenda 2030.
Topic 6: Build Resilience to Vulnerabilities, Shocks and Stress focuses on making food systems more resilient and better prepared for future shocks and stressors.

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. Join us for three days of dynamic conversations at the digital Agri4D conference 2021 to advance agriculture research for development.
