Agrobiodiversity Innovation Challenge: Call for innovative solutions in the agri-food tech space
- Impact Area
As part of the 2nd International Agrobiodiversity Congress, November 15–18, we are thrilled to announce the Agrobiodiversity Innovation Challenge: Call for innovative solutions in the agri-food tech space.
The need for innovative solutions to respond to challenges in agriculture, food and nutritional security, climate change, and environmental degradation has never been clearer. In few industries is this more pertinent than in agriculture. Current agricultural practices do considerable damage to the environment and are the cause of approximately 20% of global GHG emissions.
Not only are drastic changes needed, but shifts towards more sustainable practices must also take place in tandem with scaling the system to feed nine billion people by 2050. Ensuring food and nutritional security while reducing climate change impacts, deforestation, and biodiversity loss is no small feat.
