Food and the Asian Century: Opportunities and Challenges in the ‘Neighbourhood’

The Centre for Global Food and Resources (GFAR) at the University of Adelaide is delighted to jointly host the XXIII annual conference of the Agri-food Research Network (AFRN) and a gathering of the Australian Agricultural Resource Economics Society (AARES) in Adelaide from December 7-10, 2016. The AFRN has been meeting annually in Australasia since 1993. It represents a group of scholars, students and activists who are interested in critical political and theoretical issues in agri-food systems. AARES is an independent association of persons and organisations interested in agricultural, resource and environmental economics.

The organising committee invites you to join us in Adelaide for Agrifood XXIII. South Australia has much to offer in diverse and innovative food systems that abound in the driest state on the driest continent. From ancient but new bush foods, to wines of world renown and premium produce made locally and exported globally, there is much to explore across our conference themes.

Join us in Adelaide 7-10 December 2016 for an exciting and jam-packed Program of interesting keynote presentations, innovative panel sessions and themed concurrent sessions.
