Welcome to Agri4D 2023: Building resilient food systems in uncertain times.
The Agri4D conference aims to bridge science, policy and practice to create a real-world impact on global food systems to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 2, Zero Hunger.
All stakeholders, including researchers, practitioners, civil society, private sectors, and policy makers, are invited to join the conference to co-create solutions to build resilient food systems. You can engage in different ways, for example oral presentation, workshop, roundtable discussion and storytelling.
This conference will take stock of the current knowledge frontier, connect science to policymaking and practice and spark new collaborations among researchers, policymakers and practitioners who are working on the urgent issues of stressors and vulnerabilities within food systems in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
There are significant stressors due to climate change as well as loss of biodiversity and inequalities that have a negative impact on global food systems. On top of the societal and environmental crises, the recent challenges of Covid-19 and the growing energy crisis due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have added additional stress to many food systems, and have increased food insecurity among the poor, particularly in LMICs. Food system stressors are taking a toll on vulnerable groups who are often left out of decision-making, but are hit by the severe impacts of such crises.
The conference will be held online and address the current global situation in two different themes. It will be free of charge for all participants.
