Dear colleagues,

The 10th AIEAA Conference will be held in Rome, 9-11 June 2021 "Agriculture, food and global value chains: Issues, methods and challenges". The Conference aims to contribute to this debate, by putting together different disciplines and approaches to the analysis of agri-food GVCs, of their implications in terms of economic, social and environmental sustainability and of their prospects in the post COVID-19 era. AIEAA welcomes the submission of contributions on the topics above. However, the submission of contributions on other agricultural and applied economics topics is also encouraged. The Call for Papers is now open! Deadline for Abstracts: February 14th, 2021 Details available on AIEAA website For info please use the dedicated e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Guest Editor Nadia Palmieri and Dr. Alessandro Suardi from CREA Research Centre for Engineering and Agro-Food Processing are pleased to announce a Special Issue of Sustainability on “Agricultural and Food System Sustainability: The Complex Challenge of Losses and Waste”. For this Special Issue, they welcome conceptual and empirical studies that analyze actions: To reduce losses of products and byproducts at the farm level; To promote sustainable agriculture; To provide insights into the relationships between consumers and household food waste behaviors; To evaluate the market potential of food obtained from byproducts; To promote the reuse of waste and byproducts to increase the nutritional value of food; To underline causes of food waste and its correlation with climate change, agriculture, and population growth. This special issue is now open for submission. Deadline is 1 February 2021.

Finally, Guest Editors Dr. Oriana Gava from the Council for Agricultural Research and Agricultural Economics Analysis in Rome and Dr. Giovanna Sacchi from the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano invite researchers to contribute to the Special Issue "Addressing the Food–Health–Environmental Nexus for Agri-Food System Sustainability". Researchers are called to contribute to the existing knowledge about the food–health–environment nexus, to support the development of solutions to address the environmental and health impacts of agri-food systems simultaneously, with practical implications for strategic decision making by policymakers and in the agribusiness. The purpose of this Special Issue is to offer insights into how different practices, systems, technologies, and approaches to food production and consumption can create positive synergies in the food–health–environment nexus, by boosting the positive externalities on the environment and human health, while mitigating the negative ones. Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2021.
