SIANI Youth held its first event in the Student Union of the University of Agricultural Sciences in Ultuna Campus in Uppsala. The purpose of the event was to create a space for sharing experience about how to start a career in international development.
SIANI (Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative) is currently looking to gather expertise for further development of knowledge and cooperation strategies in order to increase food security and resource efficiency through food waste reduction in global food chains, with a particular focus on collaboration between developing and developed countries.

The workshop aimed at discussing the impact of the Swedish involvement in capacity building as well as lessons learned. The workshop had the participation of international researchers, PhD and master students, members of the Swedish government, universities, consulting agencies and the SIANI network.
