The conference is organized around the major theme of Agriculture for Sustainable Growth: Challenges and Opportunities for a new ‘Green Revolution’ and will feature some of the work supported by GDN and its Regional Network Partners, as well as research studies from all over the world.
The main theme of the Conference includes interrelated issues, each of them calling for a variety of disciplinary approaches. The competitive call for proposals will be structured around four main interrelated sub-themes:
Food security and nutrition;
Environmental challenges and natural resources management;
Economic, social and political transformations: effects and impact of agricultural development;
Financial and technological innovations: which new tools for the next ‘Green Revolution’?
