Long Abstract

The agricultural sector is constantly under pressure - to adapt to climate change, meet food production needs, contribute to socio-economic development, and reduce emissions - and this leads to disproportionate impacts especially to smallholders and the livelihoods they rely on. This panel explores different facets of agriculture and its intersection with livelihoods. Using multiple disciplinary perspectives and learning from different geographies, the panel aims to unpack issues and discuss potential systemic or long-term solutions in relation to food security, rural transformation, urban agriculture, market access, energy access, and poverty.

Method of presentation and discussion

Panellists will upload pre-recorded presentations. Convenors will ask panellists to watch other people's presentation in advance of the synchronous sessions. The convenors will also share in advance what they think are the key questions emerging from the recorded presentations which will be prompts for the synchronous discussion. The convenors will also start the synchronous session outlining these questions. Then, each presenter will give a 2min pitch summarising their key argument and another 2min in which they address one of the key questions form the convenors. After this, the discussion will be open to the audience with convenors' moderation.
