Towards a Food Secure Future: Lessons from CIFSRF and beyond

October 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - October 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Join IDRC and Global Affairs Canada in celebrating the Canadian International Food Security Research Fund’s (CIFSRF) achievements at the event “Towards a Food Secure Future: Lessons from CIFSRF and beyond.”

Over the course of nine years, CIFSRF aimed to improve food security and nutrition with applied, collaborative, results-oriented research to inform development practice. Implemented by IDRC and Global Affairs Canada, this CA$124 million fund supported 39 projects in 24 countries.

This event will showcase CIFSRF’s extensive innovations that range from:

  • new livestock vaccines;
  • nanotechnology;
  • improved fisheries,
  • aquaculture and home-gardens;
  • climate-resistant seed varieties;
  • low-cost machinery to reduce women’s drudgery; and
  • fortified salt and oil.

High-level experts and experienced stakeholders will explore how CIFSRF’s results can inform and help to improve our global food systems, including the role of women and girls in enacting change. Farmers and emerging Southern researchers will also offer their perspective on how CIFSRF has impacted their lives.
