About the Conference

The upcoming high-level event, themed “Reimagining Future Food Systems,” will bring together innovators, private and public sectors, farmers, civil society, experts, and practitioners to share knowledge, scale up cutting-edge technology solutions, and enhance collaboration.

By harnessing innovation, particularly emerging technologies, along with appropriate investment and collaborative efforts, food systems can emerge as powerful tools to promote water resilience, combat climate change, address inequality, and ensure food security for all.
