After 20 years of research, education, and capacity building in sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, Feed the Future SANREM Innovation Lab will be holding its final Annual Meeting in 2014. It will be held May 19-21 at the Marriott Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

This meeting will both share the research findings of SANREM-funded projects and also celebrate the 20 year anniversary for the program. The meeting will focus on lessons learned from the SANREM program and how SANREM’s results can influence the future of agriculture research, food security, international development, and higher education.

Among other events, there will be a student poster competition, interactive sessions that explore the future of sustainability, video screenings, and more! The topics that will be presented are diverse, from gender empowerment to international partnerships. To find out more, please find the conference website here.
