AgriFoSe2030 - Agriculture for Food Security Post 2030 translating science into policy and practice

The programme Agriculture for Food Security Post 2030 – translating science into policy and practice has been developed by researchers from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Lund University, University of Gothenburg and Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI).

The programme is divided into four themes were of two will be led by SLU. One that deals with increased productivity in small farm cropping systems, will be led by Docent Håkan Marstorp. The other addresses the livestock in small scale farming for more nutritious diets and will be led by Docent Sofia Boqvist. The two other themes are multifunctional landscapes led from Gothenburg University by Docent Madelene Ostwald and social and economic dimensions led from Lund University by Professor Agnes Andersson Djurfeldt. The work will be conducted in close association with researchers at universities and research institutes in Africa and Asia and it will not just transform and communicate science to its application in society, but it will also provide training in how to do so.
