Building Food Security Amid A Changing Climate

April 8, 2021

how agri-food ecosystem can collaborate together

Feeding the world’s growing population means we need to grow more food in the next 50 years than in the prior 10,000. At the same time, climate change’s negative impact on food yields has just begun.

Many across the agri-food space are ready for this challenge, setting ambitious targets that require major advances in resource management and the application of new technology. Indeed, it will be a business requirement for agri-food, as capital markets increasingly demand environmental impact disclosure, from water and chemical use, crop  and food waste  and carbon footprints.

This session looked at how organizations across the agri-food ecosystem can collaborate and invest in smart technology to meet these goals. Special attention was focused on Canada’s potential brand as one of the most environmentally responsible producers of food in the world.
