According to the FAO, there is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone. However, close to 1 billion people are hungry or undernourished. In order to feed another two billion people in 2050, food production will need to increase by 50 % globally. At the same time, about 1.5 billion suffer the effects of malnutrition being overweight or obese.

It is in this complex context that Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Swedish International Agriculture Network Ini­tiative (SIANI) are organising the Agri4D Conference 2019 that will take place at SLU, Uppsala on 25-26 September 2019. The main aim of the conference is to promote knowledge exchange for improved sustainability and resilience in food systems.
