Swedish research and development assistance exist in an international context and needs influence and ideas from outside; hence prominent international scientist, science leaders, development practitioners, policy makers and other stake holders are invited. As farming, not least in developing countries, is a multi/inter-disciplinary endeavor, science has to be. Accordingly, not only is forestry and livestock included in Agricultural Research; in this context it also encompasses everything from microbiology to macro-economy, putting local people, their livelihoods, land use and environments in focus.

On you will find a program, some background information and information on how to register and submit abstracts as well as some brief presentation of the key note speakers. On the same web site you will also find the documentation of last year’s conference: Production and Carbon Dynamics in Africa.

Please register at the latest on September 10th.
