Open Call for SIANI Expert Groups

Excellent chance to apply for new SIANI Expert Group funding! Have you got an idea about how to make our food systems more sustainable and our food security better? Do you have in mind people who would make a god team for realizing your idea? Time to put your ideas to practice.

SIANI Expert Groups are cross-sector working groups established around SIANI’s vision and mission:

  • SIANI’s overall vision is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal #2 and is to: “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture”.
  • SIANI’s mission is to: “Promote a multi-sector dialogue, with participation from academia, the private sector, Swedish authorities and civil society surrounding SDG 2”.


Our Expert Groups are manageable interdisciplinary groups whose purpose is to support dialogues that capture, develop, consolidate and communicate knowledge on emerging issues contributing to our vision. SIANI Expert groups widen the network by nurturing interaction between the Swedish Resource Base and SIANI connections across the World. Expert Groups have shown that they are an important tool in facilitating cross-sector work, and make a large contribution to the SIANI platform – moving toward the realization of sustainable agriculture, food security, improved nutrition and the ending of hunger.

All proposals must clearly demonstrate how the proposed group will deliver on gender equality and how its activities contribute to the alleviation of poverty. In addition, proposals should clearly fit under one of the following focus areas of the SIANI programme:

    Rural transformation
    Agricultural production and trade
    Landscape management
    Climate change, resilience, peace and conflict
    Nutrition and health

Deadline: 15th July 2017
