International Conference on Agri-Chains and Sustainable Development

“Linking local and global dynamics”

Montpellier, France, 12-14 December 2016

The conference aims to debate about the role of agricultural chains in implementing local and global frameworks and partnerships for transforming the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into reality. It seeks to cover and confront the diversity of realities behind agri-chains, from localized chains, embedded in specific places, to global value chains. In particular the conference aims to discuss the challenges and trade-offs of pursuing multiple, sometimes contradictory, SDGs through agri-chain development.

The conference will therefore focus on the following three themes: 
1.  Performance and evaluation of agri-chains with respect to the SDGs
2.  Public policies and agri-chain governance mechanisms at different scales in support of the SDGs
3. Concrete innovations and partnerships for building and transforming agri-chains towards sustainable development

Scholars and professionals from around the world are invited to share research, experiences, ideas and lessons learned with a view to stimulating the dialogue on the future of agricultural chains.
