In a changing climate and faced with an ever-growing population, the challenges for agriculture are stark. In the latest Innovation Forum webinar, panellists from Kellogg, Bunge and the Environmental Defense Fund debate how business can engage farmers to adopt climate smart agriculture, the secrets to developing long-term partnerships, and how these can help achieve real impact at scale. Among the questions discussed are how agriculture can become a net carbon sink, sourcing funding and investment for new technologies and the role of GMOs in increasing yields and reducing environmental impacts.
