By joining this r4d Lunch you have the opportunity to:

  • get informed about fascinating research and new initiatives in agroecology and food and nutrition security;  
  • be part of a pre-screening of an early version of the documentary and provide comments;  
  • network for a sustainable transformation of food systems;

Registration is now open until 31 March 2020 with the registration form below.
Places are limited and provided on the basis of "first come - first served".

This r4d Lunch is co-organised by the r4d programme and Biovision.

We look forward to exchanging with you on the following two agenda items: 

  • "Agricultural Research for Development (AgR4D) Originating in Switzerland – Dawn of an Agroecological Transition?" Donors and implementers alike call for research that demonstrates the productivity and economic viability of AE on a larger scale. The study sheds light on the money flow and provides interesting perspectives.
  • The Food Systems Caravan West Africa put agroecology and systems thinking at the core of its approach. It was on tour from September to November 2019 and provided a unique opportunity of moving a coordinating multimedia team along the road from Bamako, Mali, to Ibadan, Nigeria, where r4d partner institutions and field sites were present throughout. The team documented ongoing research activitives, organised events and promoted a cross-project and cross-country learning process. An early version of the documentary emerging from the Food Systems Caravan will be shared with you in a pre-screening.
