The 3rd LCIRAH Annual conference will focus on methodological and integrative aspects of research in agriculture and health. The conference will feature the work of researchers in nutrition, economics, anthropology, veterinary science and related fields engaged in agri-health research. It aims at offering the opportunity for exchange of ideas, while provinding a space for discussion and initiating new projects across disciplines.

The 3rd LCIRAH Annual Conference aims at fostering collaboration between researchers and will offer workshops targeted to early career researchers.

We welcome the submission of research projects that explicitly draw links between agriculture and health from both developing and developed countries and fall into one of the following broad themes:

  •     Climate change, food and health
  •     Food value chains and health
  •     Food-borne diseases and health
  •     Agriculture, changing food consumption and health
