Agriculture in an Interconnected World
August 8-14, 2015
The International Association of Agricultural Economists (IAAE) has a worldwide membership of agricultural economists and others concerned with agricultural economic problems, organized to: foster the application of agricultural economics to improve rural economic and social conditions, advance knowledge of agriculture’s economic organization and facilitate communication and information exchange among those concerned with rural welfare. The IAAE hosts their flagship conference once every three years, and attracts about a thousand colleagues from around the world. The Agriculture in an Interconnected World theme is intended to capture the widespread adoption of new communication technologies. . It embraces a broad range of interconnections that are contributing to unprecedented changes in global agriculture, such as: links between agriculture and other uses of land; the supermarket revolution in developing countries; trade policy debates, both when prices are high and when they are low; and links between scientific progress and productivity growth in agriculture.
An indication of ReNAPRI member institute’s relevance to global discussions on agriculture, three of the member institutes were invited to present at the conference.
