While there is a growing literature on the inter-linkages and synergies between agriculture and other sectors, somewhat less is known about how much coherence there is in practice at a policy and institutional level, and whether and how to bring about such synergies. Drawing from research carried out by the Overseas Development Institute for the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation on the question of coherence between agriculture and social protection, the presentation will focus on the cases of Zambia and Ghana.

While nearly 3 billion people remain at risk of malaria globally, long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) have contributed to a 40% decline in malaria case incidence in sub-Saharan Africa since 2000. New global targets are to reduce case incidence by 90% by 2030, but sustainable methods of control and elimination are needed to maintain this progress.

Who shapes what activities in the food system, and how, at all the different stages and levels? Using some example foods, we will be looking at the wide range of actors – people who do things, and the activities – things people do, in the many diverse parts of food systems. From direct roles like farmers, processors and consumers, to indirect ones like bankers, policy makers and scientists, we will move from designing and producing, to preserving, influencing, buying and wasting.

Background on the event:

20 October 2015

Over 70% of Australia’s agricultural income is derived from exports. While the trade of surplus agricultural production is regarded as a cornerstone in economic development, the world food market remains tightly regulated and protected. With on-going protectionism and the Doha Round failing to reach any consensus on agriculture at a multilateral scale, countries have been engaging in bilateral and plurilateral agreements (agreements) to bypass the impasse.
