IAMO's annual conference will be held in Halle (Saale), Germany, June 22-24, 2022, on the topic "Enhancing resilience in a post-pandemic era: challenges and opportunities for rural development".
The Corona pandemic has affected rural areas worldwide in many ways. Impacts extend to agricultural trade, international mobility, rural livelihoods, and many other development-related aspects. Some effects on rural households are still unknown, and especially poorer countries may be faced with setbacks in their rural development efforts.
Over three days, IAMO Forum 2022 will focus on the effects of the pandemic on rural areas in a series of lectures and discussions. In this context, attention will also be paid to the question of which agricultural enterprises or regions proved to be more resilient to the shocks. Under what conditions do systems succeed in remaining resilient and adaptable to future crisis situations? How has agricultural trade responded to the shocks, and do food import-dependent countries with more diversified trade structures have better food and nutrition security?
In addition to these questions, a special session on June 23, 9 a.m., will address the impact of the war on Ukraine, and the panel discussion on June 24, 10 a.m., will also reflect on the current situation.
The IAMO Forum 2022 offers insights into current research and an intensive exchange between science and practice. Numerous recognized speakers from research, industry and international institutions will participate in the conference. The conference program is available online here: https://forum2022.iamo.de/program/.
