Transformation of Global Agri-Food Systems

Global agri-food systems are undergoing a rapid transformation, involving new food standards, new technologies, novel forms of vertical coordination, changing consumer preferences, and various other trends. The ramifications for trade flows, industry structure, competitiveness, and social welfare may be far-reaching but are not yet well understood. Developing countries in particular face technical and institutional constraints, potentially impeding successful participation in emerging value chains. This may have implications for poverty, food security, nutrition, and sustainable development. 28-290417, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany Abstract submission deadline: 151116 Information:
