Tackling the Hard Questions Head On to Define Tomorrow’s Research Agenda: Let the Countdown to Science Forum 2018 Begin!

In just under six months’ time Science Forum 2018 – Win more, lose less: Capturing synergies between SDGs through agricultural research, will take place in Stellenbosch, South Africa (10-12 October). SF18 is organized by the CGIAR’S Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC) and co-hosted by the South African Agricultural Research Council.

The objective of Science Forum 2018 (SF18) is to identify substantial interactions between the Sustainable Development Goals (both positive and negative), the role of agricultural research in augmenting synergies and managing trade-offs, and the ensuing implications for the science-policy interface. The SF results will contribute to the discussion of developing research themes and frameworks in CGIAR.
