International civil society conference on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agriculture and fisheries in Cameroon, September 11-13th 2018

The conference is organized by the More and Better Network,  African Centre for Biodiversity, Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa, Asian Farmers Association, Climate Smart Agriculture Youth Network,  EAT, FoodFirst, Foodtank, IFOAM, Institute for Agriculture & Trade Policy, MIJARC, Millennium Institute,  Oakland Institute, PROPAC,  Right to Food Campaign (India), Sustainable Fish Farming Initiative (SFFI), #Women2030, Heidehof Stiftung, Karibu Foundation and Agroecology Fund.  More organizations will join. 
There are several good reasons for organizing such a conference. The main objectives for the conference are: 
• To show that agroecology and other forms of sustainable agriculture and fisheries  are key to reach many of the SDGs. 
• To strengthen the arguments and increase the pressure on governments and international institutions  to increase the financial  and political support for agroecology and other forms of sustainable agriculture and for small-scale sustainable fisheries.  
• To share experiences and strengthen the cooperation among and between farmers’ and fisherfolks’ organizations, other non governmental organizations (NGOs) philanthropic foundations and others which support the objectives of the conference.  

130 organizations have signed on to the letter on the SDGs and agriculture which the More and Better Network invited other organizations to sign on to. The letter  is also a base for the conference. See it at www.moreandbetter.org
