About the Agri4D-conference:
More than 800 million people in the world are undernourished, despite the growing scientific knowledge and decades of international aid. Natural resource conflicts, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic rapidly push more people into poverty and hunger. At the same time, obesity is an increasing health problem in almost all countries in the world. While the majority of existing food systems are drivers of biodiversity loss, greenhouse gas emissions, and water insecurity, they also provide livelihoods to a majority of people.
Just and resilient food systems can contribute to all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At this year’s Agri4D conference, we ask the participants to specifically address the core question: ‘How can we shape sustainable and just food systems resilient to the new realities of changing climates, ongoing transformations in food production, supply and demand, health threats, and pandemics?’
The objective of the conference is to present and integrate knowledge about potential solutions and outcomes with a particular focus on low-income contexts, while identifying how those solutions might be incentivized and how, together, they can enable the social and economic transformations necessary to advance and achieve the goal of food and nutrition security for all. To progress towards sustainable and just food systems, Agri4D will bring together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to engage actively with the challenges of food systems with a focus on low-income contexts in a globalized world.
