(June 08, 2018) 

The Annual Swiss Development Cooperation Conference takes place on 29 June in Bern. Topics of the conference are food security and urban development in Africa. Two panel discussions on Chad and South Africa, the opening speech by Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis and the keynote speech by Gilbert F. Houngbo, president of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), are going to showcase different aspects of these topics.

The team of FiBL's SysCom project (Farming Systems Comparison in the Tropics) will have a stand showcasing research activities addressing challenges of sustainable agriculture in the tropics.

The goal of the conference is to inform the general public about Swiss development cooperation and its commitment to food security and urban development in Africa.
