CETRAD was represented by two PhD student researchers, Ana Fonseca and José Rosário, at the XV International Conference organized by the International Farming Systems Association (IFSA), held from June 30 to July 4 in Trapani, Sicily. The event focused on the necessary and possible changes in production systems towards a more sustainable future, highlighting the trade-off between societal needs and planetary boundaries. The conference covered four thematic axes:

  • Transition pathways
  • Approaches for local development
  • Capacity building to support systemic change
  • Rethinking and reconfiguring food production and consumption

Two studies were presented by CETRAD’s PhD students as part of their doctoral theses: “Factors Influencing Smallholder Farmers’ Willingness to Adopt Agroecological Practices in Huambo Province, Angola: A Choice Experiment Study to Promote Agroecological Transition” and “Identifying Innovations Underlying Agroecological Transitions: A Review.” Participation in this conference also aimed to gather contributions, showcase the transdisciplinary research potential of CETRAD, and facilitate networking.
