i-Danha Food Lab Conference
Call for Abstracts
We are excited to announce the call for abstracts for our upcoming i-Danha Food Lab annual event!
This conference aims to gather researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and industry professionals to explore the crucial aspects of building and promoting sustainable food systems. We invite for abstract submissions on various sub-topics, including the Circular Economy, Natural Capital, Sustainable Agriculture, and Sustainable Food and Nutrition.
The Circular Economy, a key sub-topic, focuses on creating regenerative systems where resources are utilized efficiently, waste is minimized, and materials are continuously cycled back into the production process. We encourage abstracts that discuss innovative approaches, policies, and strategies for implementing circularity in the food system, including reducing food waste, promoting sustainable packaging solutions, and fostering resource recovery and recycling.
Natural Capital, another important aspect, recognizes the value and benefits derived from the Earth's ecosystems, including biodiversity, clean water, and fertile soil. Abstracts exploring the integration of natural capital considerations into food production, supply chains, and decision-making processes are highly encouraged. Topics of interest include ecosystem services, sustainable land use, biodiversity conservation, and the economic evaluation of natural resources.
Sustainable Agriculture plays a critical role in building resilient food systems while minimizing environmental impacts. We welcome abstracts that address sustainable farming practices, such as agroecology, organic farming, regenerative agriculture, precision agriculture, and permaculture. Contributions examining the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable agriculture, including climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, soil health management, and water resource conservation, are welcomed.
Sustainable Food and Nutrition is a sub-topic that emphasizes the interconnection between food choices, human health, and environmental sustainability. Abstracts focusing on the promotion of nutritious diets, sustainable food consumption patterns, and the impact of dietary choices on environmental sustainability and public health outcomes are encouraged. Topics of interest include plant-based diets, sustainable consumption, food labelling and certification schemes, and strategies to address the double burden of malnutrition.
We invite abstracts that employ diverse methodologies, including empirical research, case studies, policy analyses, and conceptual frameworks, to shed light on the challenges, opportunities, and potential solutions for creating sustainable food systems. Submissions that offer interdisciplinary perspectives, propose innovative solutions, or present practical applications for policymakers and industry stakeholders are particularly encouraged.
Abstracts must be written in English and should not exceed 250 words. Please include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), and contact details with your submission. Submit your abstract by October 31st. Notifications of acceptance will be sent shortly.
