This event is part of the mobilisation of research actors in the field of agriculture and forestry to contribute to meeting the new global and local challenges linked to sustainable development. The ambition of the organisers is to progress in the acquisition, sharing and dissemination of new knowledge. This knowledge will enable decision-makers at local, national and international levels to define policies and strategies aimed at ensuring transitions towards sustainable development, using the sectors as levers for action. In particular, the conference will aim to:
1. Nourish the dialogue with decision-makers in the definition of policies and strategies aimed at ensuring transitions towards sustainable development, using the sectors as levers for action;
2. Encourage scientists and experts to imagine together new development models and to engage in innovative experiments for an inclusive and sustainable economy;
3. To shed light on and debate new models of public/private partnerships and investments as well as new models of multi-stakeholder alliances for sustainable agricultural value chains.
4. To strengthen and stimulate international scientific exchange networks on the theme.
