Save the date

On 23 and 24 April 2020, the annual conference of the Swiss Society for Agricultural Economics and Sociology (SGA) will take place at the BBZ Arenenberg in Salenstein (Thurgau). The topic of the conference will be:

"Agriculture in the context of climate change - Risks and options for action"

Climate change is one of the great challenges of our time, especially for agriculture, which is directly affected by its consequences. The entire agricultural and food sector, with all its actors, must learn how farming can best adapt to a changing environment, but also how it can make a relevant contribution to mitigating climate change. The aim of the SGA Annual Conference is to gather scientists, decision-makers and practitioners in order to exchange on these issues.

The conference will feature current scientific findings and practical experience that relate to agriculture and climate change and highlight existing gaps in knowledge.
