In addition to the Crawford Fund’s monthly e-newsletters and our weekly webstories, we produce a special printed newsletter to coincide with the Annual Parliamentary Conference each year. This year’s conference was titled ‘The Business of Food Security: Profitability, Sustainability and Risk’ and our August Highlights newsletter reflects this theme.
In the 2015 edition you can read about achieving sustainable intensification to improve food security; the business side of plant breeding to meet market demands; Crawford Fund public awareness initiatives; past and upcoming training events; and our 2015 award winners—The Crawford Fund Medal, Food Security Journalism Award and the Crawford Fund Fellowship. There is also a report on the experience of one of our Australian Volunteers for International Development, and a list of the successful 2015 Conference Scholars.
