Bread from Stones?

A joint conference of

The Crawford Fund and the Africa Australia Research Forum

In developing countries, resource wealth should make it easier to make investments that underpin steady growth, and with less short term sacrifice than is normally the case. However, that is not how it usually plays out.

Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate economist



The Crawford Fund’s annual conference on food security, which has been held annually in Canberra for over 20 years, is being organised in 2013 in Perth in conjunction with the Africa Australia Research Forum, now in its third year and will precede the highly successful “Africa Down Under” mining event.

This year’s event will address the interaction between mining and agriculture, industries so significant to both Australia and African countries, and will identify national and international practices and policies that provide benefits to communities and improve food security.
