The Agricultural Research for Development Conference 2017  (Agri4D 2017 Conference) is a two­ day event for researchers and professionals working with and/or interested in agriculture for develop­ment. The Conference is organized by Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI).

Deadline call for abstracts Agri4D extended to May 15, 2017!

There is today a rapid migration of the rural poor to swelling urban centers in search of better job opportunities and improved livelihoods. A large part of these rural migrants succeeds in finding better life, but for many the hopes of a better future often turns into a nightmare of economic and social insecurity. Rural-urban linkages may have a positive impact on the rural poor connecting them to economic incomes and development opportunities.  A rural transformation linked to pro poor inclusive growth and urban dynamics can thus be a critical component of sustainable development as a whole.
