Call: International Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials Seed Money Projects (SMPs) 2018

Seed Money Projects serve to initiate (or act as the ‘seed’ for) international partnerships for Dutch SMEs in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors. The creation of a consortium is key in this. The objective is to contribute to the sustainable development of a local agricultural and/or horticultural system. This is conditional on the participation of a local problem owner (a business and/or government) able to point to a demand and necessity for the project. A Seed Money Project results in an international partnership feasibility business model. A good business model is managed and supported by business and must be capable of ‘tempting’ other potential candidate consortium members to participate and thus contribute to international system solutions in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors.

LANDac is now accepting submissions for its Annual International Conference 2018!


LANDac’s Annual International Conference 2018 will take place on 28th and 29th June 2018 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

The conference will look at land investments through the lens of mobility. What are the implications of land based investments on the movements of people, and on processes of urbanization? And how have displacement and population movements contributed to new and contesting land claims?

The 2018 conference takes this land-mobilities nexus as a starting point, focusing on the extent to which land acquisitions trigger the inflow or outflow of particular groups of people – and also yield other mobilities (capital, goods, ideas etc.) and land claims. Given the variety of mobilities, what are good ways forward in land governance? To what extent can land governance contribute to inclusive development – preventing eviction and displacement, while supporting vulnerable groups to settle in safe pla

Open call for examples of ‘Innovation for agroecology’

2nd International Symposium on Agroecology

Dear partners and colleagues,

As you may know, FAO is organizing the 2nd International Symposium on Agroecology (more information here: https://goo.gl/ic7PTf).

Agroecology depends on the co-creation of local capacities and knowledge –often building on traditional knowledge- that works with complex systems under changing environmental, social and economic conditions. That requires shifting the emphasis from traditional technology transfer approaches to identifying, supporting and strengthening the institutions and processes needed to enable innovative ways of knowledge creation and sharing.

As part of the Symposium, FAO will co-organize and host a ‘Market place on innovation for agroecology’. With the present call, we would like to highlight innovative example actions or processes from a wide range of actors involved in agriculture and food systems in their diversity
