Training course targeting young Asian researchers with PhD

The Agriculture for Food Security 2030 (AgriFoSe2030) programme, a Swedish initiative, will conduct a training course for young Asian researchers on effective research-to-policy communication for agricultural development. The course is a collaboration between AgriFoSe2030 and The Gothenburg Center for Environment and Sustainability (GMV) at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. AgriFoSe2030 speaks directly to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the promotion of smallholder agricultural development.

The AgriFoSe2030 focuses on three main cross-cutting themes that the programme believes are of high relevance for sustainable food security:

1. Sustainable intensification,

2. Access to markets and value chains, and

3. Women and youth
