This interview with Matthew Fielding, communications manager for the SEI-hosted Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI), programme, explains the mission of SIANI and highlights some recent and ongoing activities. Fielding begins by explaining:

SIANI is a communications platform financed by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) that brings together people and institutions connected to Sweden who are working on agriculture and food security issues. Sustainable food security and nutrition for all is our vision, so everything we do, we try to ensure is helping us make progress towards this vision.

We take new research, knowledge, skills and information on agriculture, food security, poverty reduction, and development, and package and share it with key audiences around the world. We frequently sponsor discussions and learning events in Sweden; we hosted an event at the Global Landscapes Forum in Lima in 2015, and were active at the GLF in Paris as well; we have lead events at the annual Committee on Global Food Security (CFS) meetings in Rome and are planning one at the moment on antibiotic resistance in livestock; we led a learning event at the Agriculture and Rural Development Day at Rio +20 if you remember that far back.
