2017 Sir John Crawford Memorial Address
A New Narrative for Ending Hunger
MONDAY, 7 AUGUST 2017
The Sir John Crawford Memorial Address has been held annually since 1985 in honour of the remarkable Australian in whose name the Crawford Fund was established. He contributed at the highest levels to the development of Australia and other countries, and passionately supported international agricultural research for development.
This year’s Sir John Crawford Memorial Address, A New Narrative for Ending Hunger, was presented by: Dr Lindiwe Majele Sibanda, Vice President for Country Support, Policy, and Delivery of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), and Member, Policy Advisory Council, Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
Our specially styled networking dinner enabled participants to meet colleagues and make new connections with a wide variety of peers from across industries and regions in an enjoyable and more relaxed format than a formally seated dinner.
Vote of Thanks was given by Professor Andrew Campbell, CEO, ACIAR.
During the evening we announced the winner of the Crawford Fund 2017 Food Security Journalism Award.
