The 4th African Food and Nutrition Forum will be held in October 2015 at Addis Ababa University

The 4th African Food and Nutrition Forum

We are happy to organize the 4th African Food and Nutrition Forum (AFNF) in Addis Ababa, where the first and second AFNF was organized. The main theme of the 4th AFNF is: "Global response for Sustainable food systems in the post-Millennium Development Goal Era: implications to health, nutrition, and food security."

As we get closer to the end of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), we have the opportunity to evaluate what the MDGs have and have not achieved and why, to inform the formulation of the Sustainable development goals (SDGs) for 2030. The world is about to turn the page and its implications to our nations and more specifically food, nutrition, and health, preoccupies the African Food and Nutrition Forum. We believe that better food and nutrition is a sustainable development objective. That is why the 4th AFNF workshop will voice impressions and suggestions of the academia and development program implementers on the SDGs.

Sessions highlighting innovative research, programmatic challenges, agriculture, food safety, climate change, and gender issues will offer a rare, but exciting space for professional, empirically-driven dialogue that encourages experts to interact across disciplinary, institutional, and spatiotemporal boundaries to contribute to the formulation of the SDGs and gauge their implications.

Join us in this exciting opportunity to ensure that the best science is garnered to support the emergence of the Sustainable Development Goals.
