Hide / Show Abstract

The title of this conference on Agricultural Knowledge System (AKS) may be clear to its attendees, but not necessarily to the general public. In simplest terms, this meeting is about innovation and will address the ways in which innovation can help secure adequate supplies of food in agriculture, feed and fuel over the course of the coming decades, and how governments and policymakers can achieve this in a sustainable way.
