4th International Conference in Research for Development (ICRD)

Bern, Switzerland

Convened in Bern, Switzerland, the 4th ICRD will look at various contributions to R4D that are working towards sustainable development in countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. These contributions will then be assessed against the SDGs and related targets.

SDC, one of the organizers of the event, has invited 16 directors of CGIAR research programmes to attend the conference, including Izabella Koziell of WLE.​ Four side events will provide an overview of current trends in CGIAR research with the aim of promoting collaboration with Swiss scientific institutions where there is overlap.

WLE will be part of a discussion, titled Sustainability of production landscapes in the face of climate change along with WHEAT, FTA, and CCAFS. The session will be held on Wednesday, 6 September  from 7:30 - 8:45 in room A015 of the UniS building. Learn more.​
