Ett diskussionsunderlag om svensk forskarkompetens för hållbar global utveckling inom livsmedelsförsörjning, lantbruk och miljö. SIANI:s Expert Group “International Swedish Agricultural Resource Base (ISARB)” arbetar under 2015–2016 för att bredda och stärka kontakterna mel
The Sustainable Development Goals framework includes the ambition to provide all people with access to safe water, sanitation and food. However, despite multiple linkages between water, sanitation and food production, these sectors are often handled separately. Holistic approach to water, sanitation and food production is also rare in the development cooperation work.
The programme Agriculture for Food Security Post 2015 (AgriFoSe) – translating science into policy and development has been developed by researchers from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Lund University, Gothenburg University and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).
On August 30, 2015 Jose Graziano da Silva, FAO Director General together with Elizabeth Backteman, the Swedish State Secretary for Rural Affairs visited the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU in Uppsala. The focus of the visit was to exchange knowledge about ways to reduce the use of antibiotics in global livestock and aquaculture production.
