Lazio Region will host the second International Conference on Agriculture in an Urbanizing Society in Rome, as part of the programme Lazio Expo 2015. The Conference will focus on reconnecting agriculture and food chains to societal needs. Over four days the world’s leading researchers and scholars will discuss on the most innovative aspects of multifunctionality in agriculture and on the connections and relationships between urban and rural worlds.
My paper submission entitled “Creating enabling environments for urban and Peri –urban agriculture in a Sub Sahara African city – the case of Kampala “ was accepted and I will be delivering it at the conference.
This conference aims at advancing the scientific state of the art in research on multifunctional agriculture and urban-rural relations by bringing together scholars from a wide range of disciplines from many parts of the world. The 2015 edition will focus on reconnecting agriculture and food chains to societal needs.
Scholarships were limited and as result, I am looking for a travel grant to facilitate my attendance at the conference. If anyone has information on obtaining travel grants, please feel free to share here.
