The 4th International Conference on Global Food Security ('Achieving local and global food security: at what costs?') will take place online from 07 to 09 December 2020 (initially scheduled face-to-face in #Montpellier)

The 4th International Conference on Global Food Security addresses the topic of food security at all spatial levels from local to global, and from an interdisciplinary and systemic food systems perspective. It aims to better understand environmental, nutritional, agricultural, demographic, socio-economic, political, technological and institutional drivers, costs and outcomes of current and future food security. Interactions with contextual factors including climate change, urbanisation, greening the economy and data-driven technologies will be central. The conference addresses the triple burden of malnutrition: hunger, micronutrient deficiencies and obesity. It explores the state-of-the-art of interdisciplinary insight, addresses the trade-offs that occur - and synergies that can be sought -in transforming food systems. These are aimed at reconciling the competing environmental, economic or social objectives and outcomes towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals at different levels across spatial and temporal scales. Contributions which bridge themes or scales, foster interdisciplinarity and integration or address interactions between science and non-academic stakeholders (civil society, private sector and policy makers) are particularly welcome.
The pre-conference mini-symposia will take place on 4 December 2020.
Congress organized by Elsevier, I-Site MUSE, Wageningen University with the partnership of Agropolis International, CIRAD,IRD,INRA, CGIAR. #GFOODSEC2020

Agropolis International, partner of INTA through INTA LABINTEX-Eu, conveys its condolences and sympathy to INTA for the death of Carlos Casamiquela, who died as a result of COVID-19 on September 12, 2020

We had all greatly appreciated the qualities of the Ing. Agr. Carlos Horacio Casamiquela, then President of INTA, during his visits to France as well as during our stays in Argentina and for the conception and signature of the agreement leading to the establishment of INTA LABINTEX-Eu in Montpellier. With him and his team, we have thus created an efficient mechanism for scientific collaborations between Argentina and France in the field of agronomic research, which has allowed several INTA researchers to be hosted in France for short or long term stays.
On these different occasions, we have been able to appreciate the skills, listening skills and sense of decision making of Ing. Agr. Carlos Casamiquela. We thank you to relay, in the course of this painful time, our condolences and our sympathy to his relatives and his colleagues as well as to all the INTA staff.
On behalf of : Bernard Hubert, Advisor to the President of Agropolis International ; Patrick Caron, President of Agropolis International; Eric Fargeas, Director of Agropolis International and all members and staff of the Agropolis International association.
