The Crawford Fund’s Annual Conference is a highlight of Australia’s agricultural development and food security calendar. For more than three decades we have drawn significant focus to issues worthy of global and national attention, and this September we continue that proud tradition.
This year’s event, titled “Global Food Security in a Riskier World: Diversification for Resilient Food and Nutrition Systems” will focus on how to manage risk and build resilience in the face of the 3Cs – Covid, Climate Change and Conflict.
We will consider how farmers the world over, who are generally facing similar significant risks, can understand risks, and adapt and diversify their production systems to sustain production.
To this end, our key conference themes will examine on and off farm risks and solutions and key policy settings that will facilitate the development of resilient farming systems.
