MEDFORUM 2021 encourages debate and innovative methods for onstage presentations. You are thus invited to apply keeping in mind the challenges and opportunities of arid and dry regions. Below are the general themes accepted by the MEDFORUM 2021 and the FSD 2021:

  1. Designing farming systems and climate services for adaptation to climate change and climate variability
  2. Multi-scale and multicriteria trade-off analysis to design sustainable and healthy agri-food systems
  3. Methods and tools to accelerate out-scaling and up-scaling of innovations in agriculture
  4. Assessment of socio-ecological resilience in agricultural landscapes
  5. System design in agriculture: state of the art and recent conceptual and methodological developments
  6. Accelerating agriculture transformation with big data, remote sensing and models
  7. Addressing the gender dimension of agricultural transformation
  8. Policies and institutional requirements to address SDGs through agricultural development
  9. Improving agriculture performance while decreasing synthetic input use : which progress?
  10. Farming (pollination, crop protection) and feeding (human and animals) with insects
  11. Migration, conflicts and instability: is agriculture part of the problem or of the solution?
  12. Are development agencies and donors using the outcome of Farming Systems Design research?
  13. Climate smart, nutrition sensitive and job creative irrigated systems based on agro-biodiversity
  14. Contribution of the Rainfed cereal based systems to the food basket of the drylands
  15. The future of low rainfall agro-sylvo-pastoral systems under climate change: trends and opportunities for enhanced sustainability
  16. Integrated desert farming systems: scope and constraints for a sustainable expansion of agriculture in the deserts
  17. On-farm use of non traditional water (treated wastewater, saline water) for food production
