Diversification for Sustainable and Resilient Agriculture

Save the date

20 - 22 September 2021, Berlin, Germany


Rationale and Aims


Landscape 2021 will bring together scientists from across disciplines with key actors to explore how diversity and diversification can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agriculture. Promising alternatives integrate high productivity with minimal use of external resources, the provisioning of ecosystem services and protection of biodiversity. Both adaptable and flexible in the face of climatic and market shocks, they support rural communities with robust economic, employment and recreational opportunities. Conference contributions will be drawn from the natural and social sciences, including inter- and transdisciplinary approaches on topics related to the diversification of cropping systems (crop rotations, cropping patterns), farm activities (arable, livestock, agroforestry, bioenergy), landscape patterns as well as governance and institutional arrangements.

We call for sessions, masterclasses and presentations of products about diversified cropping systems, farming system, landscape management and governance for:

  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • Biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Sustainable intensification, reduced use of chemical pesticides and fertilizer inputs and improved resource use efficiency
  • Rural development and rural-urban interaction
  • Food security and rural livelihood

Scientific methods include experimentation, co-design, technological and social innovations, modelling, assessment, data management, transformation. Topics addressing the interface between farming system and other land uses and processes at landscape level are particularly welcome.

A special market place event with participation of key actors will be dedicated to presentation and discussion of research products for utilization in practice and policy, such as apps, decision support systems, knowledge systems, new co-operations and the like.
