The digital Agri4D 2021 conference “Food Systems for New Realities” is now open for registration!

This year, the focus will be on how we can shape sustainable and just food systems that are resilient to new realities of changing climates, transformations in food production, supply and demand, health threats and pandemics 

Every two years, SLU Global and the Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI) bring together researchers and practitioners dedicated to agriculture for development in the Agri4D conference. The main focus this year is on how we can address the urgent challenges posed by the pandemic, climate change, and other global crises that rapidly change our societies.  

The conference takes place digitally 28-30 September. Over the three days, six different topics related to the main theme will be discussed, and we are very happy to have received many interesting abstracts from a wide range of disciplines and nationalities. We now look forward to having inspiring discussions, connecting science to policymaking and practice, and to spark new collaborations. 

Sign up here and join us online in September! 

Conference topics 

  • Topic 1: Justice in Food Governance 
  • Topic 2: Towards Improved Food and Nutrition Security from Smallholder-inclusive Food Systems  
  • Topic 3: Agroecology
