International Conference on “Advances in Agriculture and Food System Towards Sustainable Development Goals" (AAFS-2022) from 22-24th August 2022 at University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Food security is often explained in terms of food availability, food access and food utilization. Agriculture plays a fundamental role in people's ability to improve their diets, supplying food for consumption and providing income that can be used to purchase nutritious food. Improved agriculture and food systems will emphasize diversification, encompassing nutrient-dense; climate resilient; economically viable; and locally available or adaptable species. Selecting crops that are traditionally grown by women can also create synergies with objectives to empower women.
Integrated farming systems are a mix of crop production, animal and fish raising, specially adapted to local conditions that can greatly contribute to diversifying diets. Nutrition-sensitive agriculture which promotes integrated farming systems can improve the supply of a greater diversity of plant and animal-based foods and help to ensure people have year-round access to nutritious diets.
This international conference will include keynote presentations, oral talks, poster presentations and exhibitions. The format of the conference will be hybrid, giving the opportunity to attend online and will present themes such as:
Sustainable Transformation in Agriculture and Food Production System,
Recent Advances in Aquaculture for Food and Nutritional Security,
Innovation in Global and Regional Agricultural Education Towards Youth Empowerment,
Climate Change Resilient Agriculture,
Post-Harvest Technology for Responsible Consumption, and
The organizers and partners invite all the students and global food experts, scientists, researchers, academicians, agriculturists, economists, environmentalists, policy makers, industrialists and innovative farm youth/farmers to be part of this event.
