Since this is the final conference of the 2013-2017 Legume Innovation Lab program, the goal is to showcase the research achievements of the international community of LIL scientists and to consider how the research outputs can potentially improve the livelihoods and nutrition of smallholder grain legume farmers, value chain stakeholders, and consumers in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
