The Crawford Fund Annual Conference

December 13, 2021 - December 14, 2021

Food & Nutrition Security – The Biosecurity, Health, Trade Nexus

The Crawford Fund’s annual conference is a highlight of Australia’s agricultural development and food security calendar. For almost 30 years it has drawn significant focus to issues worthy of global and Australian attention.

Overarching this year’s event is the coronavirus pandemic. The emphasis will be on food systems and the way in which food production systems interact with human health in terms of zoonotic diseases and their spread. Biodiversity is as important in that natural systems may provide a reservoir of information and resources that can be used to develop solutions for future-proofing society against emerging risks.

This year’s conference will explore the specific risks to plant, animal, and human health, how these factors are putting global food and nutrition security in peril, and the emerging technological and management solutions to overcome these threats.
