International conference on Agri-Chains and Sustainable Development

The conference on AC&SD 2016 will bring participants from all world regions to debate about the role of agricultural value chains in implementing global and local frameworks and partnerships for translating the Sustainable Development Goals into reality. Agricultural value chains form spaces where local and global challenges to sustainability connect and within which local and global actors experiment and negotiate innovative solutions.

Participants will be called to share knowledge, innovative practices and ideas through plenary sessions and a series of parallel sessions, where both communications and posters will be discussed.

The debates will be devoted to the following 3 themes:

  1. Performance and evaluation of agri-chains with respect to the SDGs
  2. Public policies and agri-chain governance mechanisms at different scales in support of the SDGs
  3. Concrete innovations and partnerships for building and transforming agri-chains towards sustainable development
