D.W. Brooks Lecture: How Science, Technology and Innovation Can Accelerate the Transformation of Our Agri-Food Systems
For decades, humanity has struggled to end hunger and poverty and now the numbers are marching up. Where does science, innovation and technology fit in to that struggle to achieve zero hunger once and for all? How has this challenge of producing more food changed since COVID-19? How has e-agriculture advanced how we produce and consume our food and changed the face of farming around the world? More importantly, how do we get these scientific and technological innovations to the most under-resourced farmers?
These and more questions will be answered during a dynamic and interactive talk by United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization Chief Scientist Ismahane Elouafi. This event is free and open to the public.
