Deadline: 15 July 2017
Have you got an idea about how to make food systems more sustainable and food security better? Do you have in mind people who would make a good team for realizing your idea? Yes?! Then fill in the application as Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI) has delightfully announced the new call for applications for the Expert Groups to promote a multi-sector dialogue, with participation from academia, the private sector, Swedish authorities and civil society surrounding SDG 2.
The Expert Groups are manageable interdisciplinary groups whose purpose is to support dialogues that capture, develop, consolidate and communicate knowledge on emerging issues contributing to SIANI’s vision. SIANI Expert groups widen the network by nurturing interaction between the Swedish Resource Base and SIANI connections across the World. Expert Groups have shown that they are an important tool in facilitating cross-sector work, and make a large contribution to the SIANI platform – moving toward the realization of sustainable agriculture, food security, improved nutrition and the ending of hunger.
The overall objective of this program is to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.
Proposals should clearly fit under one of the following focus areas of the SIANI programme:
- Rural transformation
- Agricultural production and trade
- Landscape management
- Climate change, resilience, peace and conflict
- Nutrition and health
- The main target audiences for the expert groups are: SIANI members, policy makers, Swedish Resource Base (SRB) and partners in developing countries.
- Expert Groups do not need to be geographically located in Sweden, but should demonstrate engagement with Swedish funded activities and institutions.
- Expert groups with strong reciprocal partnerships with organizations in low-income countries will be encouraged.
