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.
Distinguished key-note speakers and up to 250 delegates, including key actors from developing countries and innovators from the field, are expected at the conference venue in Montpellier. This conference is organized by Cirad, in partnership with French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAEDI), AFD (Agence Française de Développement), Agropolis International, Agrinatura, the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM), IAVFF (Institut Agronomique, Vétérinaire et Forestier de France, Agreenium), Inra, IRD, Montpellier SupAgro, Michigan State University, the RIMISP (Centro Latinoamericano para el Desarollo Rural), the University of Sussex (Institute of Development Studies), Wageningen University (WUR) and the Moringa Fund.
The conference aims at:
Nourishing the dialogue with decision makers for enriching policy and strategy formulation towards sustainable development, using agricultural value chains as effective levers for action;
Engaging further scientists and experts into innovative experiences for an inclusive and sustainable economy and in imagining new models of development;
Shedding light on new patterns of public/private partnerships and investments and on multistakeholders’ alliances for sustainable value chains.
