Make Ireland Sustainable for All is pleased to announce its second national conference on the Sustainable Development Goals. This year’s conference examines the role of Small-scale farmers and food producers in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our current food system is profoundly flawed. Large-scale industrial agriculture damages biodiversity and significantly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. Farmers struggle to earn a decent income, both within the Global North and the Global South. Access to sufficient food and adequate nutrition is a key challenge. Every year, malnutrition claims the lives of three million children under the age of five.

It’s time to rethink how we grow, share and consume food.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals provide a transformative roadmap for sustainable development, in which food and agriculture, people’s livelihoods and the management of natural resources are addressed not separately, but as one.

Small-scale food production is at the heart of this vision.

This conference seeks to engage government representatives and stakeholders in dialogue on the role of small-scale and community food producers in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

This will examine both the challenges and enabling factors for small-scale food producers locally and globally, to ensure an enabling environment to provide safe and nutritious food, to generate decent incomes, while supporting people-centred rural development and protecting the environment.

Please join us in this national conversation.
