The AgriFoSe2030 programme targets the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 - "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture" in low-income countries. We synthesize and translate existing science into policy and practice, and develop capacity to achieve this.
The programme contributes to sustainable intensification of agriculture, increased market access for small-holders and strengthen the role of women and youth.
The AgriFoSe2030 programme is developed by a consortium of scientists from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Lund University, University of Gothenburg and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and is financed by The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
