Theme: End hunger and achieve food security by 2030
The theme of the conference addresses the second of the sustainable development goals (SDG 2): End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Still today, almost 800 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead an active and healthy life. The vast majority live in developing countries. It is currently widely agreed that there are a number of dimensions of food and nutrition security that needs to be fulfilled simultaneously in order to eradicate hunger and to reduce food insecurity globally. Dietary change related to increasing incomes and migration to urban areas adds to the complexity of the situation. In many developing countries there is a high prevalence of both undernutrition and overnutrition.
Want to present your research?
The aim of the parallel sessions is to present the broad range of development research from Lund University students and researchers and partners and we welcome presentations of papers, work-in-progress, and research projects relating to the variety of development issues. We also encourage poster presentations.
The deadline for abstract submission (max 200 words) is 1st of October, 2016.
Please include name, affiliation, and position together with an abstract and send it to Claudia Deijl: claudia.deijl [at] keg.lu.se
