FP Virtual Dialogue: AgTech – Global Deployment for Sustainable Development
How can AgTech strengthen food security and enable growing societies to do more with less?
Intensifying concerns about climate change and an ongoing struggle to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals have catalyzed unparalleled growth and innovation in agriculture technology (AgTech). With crop yields diminishing around the world and pressure on already scarce resources heightening, innovators are keenly focused on how to sustainably produce more with less.
From vertical farms to high-tech monitoring systems and circular systems that combat food waste, these technologies are already revolutionizing the sector and will be vital to food security in cities and rural areas around the world. As unveiled during COP26, the Agriculture Innovation Mission for Climate initiative aims to turbo-charge these efforts by encouraging international collaboration among like-minded innovators and providing funding to the start-ups that could shape the future of food.
Foreign Policy, in partnership with the UAE Embassy in Washington, held a virtual discussion with innovators, policymakers, and thought leaders which explored the cutting edge of AgTech, and the ways coordinated global action can help secure global food systems.
