Agriculture is a vital sector since it provides foods and raw materials related to food for human life. Agriculture also gives employment opportunities to a very large proportion of communities. It has also agreat significance in global trade as well as foreign exchange resources, which in turn might improve a country’s GNP value. Agriculture is at a crossroads. It has to find ways to feed the world while being environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
Achieving global food security whilst reconciling demands on the environment is the greatest challenge faced by mankind. By 2050 at least 9 billion people will need food, and increasing incomes and urbanization will inevitably lead to dietary change. The food security challenge will increasingly encompass the triple burden of malnutrition – under nutrition, obesity and micronutrient deficiencies. The urgency of the issues has led to huge scientific strides forwards, making it difficult to keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific research. The International Conference on Sustainable Agriculture for Rural Development 2018 (ICSARD‐2018) therefore aims to deliver state-of-the-art analysis, inspiring visions and innovative methods arising from research in a wide range of disciplines.
The conference will address the food system activities of processing, distributing and consuming food, as well as food production from crop, livestock, freshwater and marine sources; the availability, access, utilization and stability dimensions of food security; and the synergies and trade-offs between economic, environmental, health and social objectives and outcomes. The conference will thereby range across disciplines and spatiotemporal scales of analysis to span the drivers, activities and outcomes of food systems to encompass both contextualized and holistic treatments of the broad challenge of food security.
ICSARD2018 aims at providing an effective forum for speakers, academicians, professionals and practitioners coming from universities, research institutions, government agencies and industries to share and exchange ideas, experience and recent progress in all aspects of sustainable agriculture and global food security.
The ICSARD will be held on October19-20,2018 in Purwokerto, Indonesia, and will be hosted by the Faculty of Agriculture, Jenderal Soedirman University (UNSOED), Indonesia. The ICSARD2018 is funded by Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education, Republic of Indonesia and Jenderal Soedirman University, Purwokerto, Indonesia.
It is a matter of great privilege for us to invite you to contribute a research paper and participate in the deliberations of theconference.We look forward to welcome you at Purwokerto, home of JenderalSoedirman University, Indonesia.
