The 3rd International Conference on Conservation Agriculture in Southeast Asia will be organized on 10-15th December 2012 in Hanoi. As part of CANSEA, CIRAD and NOMSFSI will organize the Conference in partnership with the UQ.
Entitled “Conservation Agriculture and Sustainable Upland Livelihood: Innovations for, with and by Farmers to Adapt to Local and Global changes” the conference aims to: (1) characterize drivers of agrarian/farming system changes in Southeast Asia; (2) analyze the impact of those changes on the sustainability of agricultural ecosystems, (3) identify, assess and design innovations related to conservation agriculture that provide possibilities for small-scale family farmers to sustainably intensify agricultural production while improving their ability to adapt to local and global changes, and (4) discuss conditions and strategies to widely extend conservation agriculture with small-scale farmers.
The Conference is supported by the PAMPA consortium -which involves the French Development Agency (AFD), the French Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs (MAEE), the French Global Environment Facility (FFEM)- and by the Australian Centre for International Agriculture Research (ACIAR). The conference will serve as a forum for researchers, practitioners and policy makers from the world around to share experience, explore new opportunities and strengthen partnerships towards wide adoption of conservation agriculture.
