The Agricultural Economics Association of South Africa invites you to join in on the conversation during the virtual annual conference.

This year the conference theme is “Pandemics and political unrest in South Africa: Reflections by agricultural economists”. 

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused severe pressure on food systems, while the 2021social unrest in Gauteng and Kwa-Zulu Natal created additional disruptions in South Africa’s economy that affected the resilience and sustainability of the entire value chain.

Our virtual conference will provide an opportunity for the agricultural economics profession to reflect on the ways it influenced the national response to the COVID-19 pandemic in private, public, and academic sectors. We will also discuss its role in informing a response to the looting of agricultural value chain businesses.

The dialogue will further stimulate discussions on how agricultural economists can reposition themselves to prepare for pandemics, economic shocks, and natural disasters that are predicted to become more frequent and severe in the future.

Date:   7 October 2021
Time:   09:00
Cost:    R500 (includes membership) or R250 (conference only)
