Part 5 | Land Use and Agriculture: Accelerating the fourth agricultural revolution: a cornerstone to decarbonisation
Friday, 20th November
2pm – 4:30pm GMT
Long before the pandemic caused even greater disruption to our global food system the industry was facing multiple challenges. As the agricultural sector begins to rebuild, stakeholders from across the agri-value chain must prepare against the potentially greater and more disruptive effects of climate change.
Like many other industries, innovation, advanced technologies such as biotechnologies, Artificial Intelligence, remote sensors and IoT devices will play a crucial role in limiting the sector’s contribution to climate change whilst mitigating and adapting to its increased risks will require shifts across the entire value chain and be utilised by regional and national policy makers to design more effective interventions.
The final day of the Virtual Forum will explore the future of farming and the impact disruptive, emerging and digital technologies will have in accelerating the fourth agricultural revolution.
