Call For Papers
“Global Food Security through Sustainability in Agriculture & Fisheries “
AgriFish2017 is the premier forum for the presentation of new trends, advances and research results in the fields of Agriculture, Animal Sciences, Fisheries and Aqua Culture. It will bring together leading academics, scientists and researchers from around the world.
AgriFish2017 invites individual or panel proposals for presentations on any topic on the themes of the conference. We welcome individual paper presentations, panel sessions, round table discussions, performances, short films and posters.
The rate of growth in agricultural production is declining; world grain reserves have fallen to record lows; the demand for imported grain is increasing; and commitments of aid to agricultural development have decreased. This against a backdrop of expanding world population, intensifying demands on agricultural resources, and a growing recognition that the agri-food system is not sustainable. The importance of managing the agriculture system in a way that is conducive to the health of the ecosystem is already well established
We are particularly interested to hear about your research, knowledge and experiences on the development of policy, strategies, approaches, tools, methodologies that can be adopted or adapted to better inform policy discussions by institutions, organizations and the international community to balance the global food production and Natural Resources. We are also keen to hear about grass roots research which clearly identifies needs and knowledge gaps for further research.
In this context we hope that this conference will stimulate discussions and debates and allows for the flow and exchange of knowledge and ideas thereby creating a unique resource and point of reference in this field. This will be an interactive conference underpinned by working group sessions.
