Regenerative agriculture, better decision-making, and what the EUDR means for coffee
20 Dec 23
This week: another chance to hear our three most popular podcast interviews of 2023.
Innovation Forum's Ian Welsh talks with Rejane Souza, senior vice-president for global innovation at Norway-based fertiliser company Yara International, about the rise and rise of regenerative agriculture. They discuss the role of companies across the value chain in enabling technology and innovation, and the importance of taking a farmer-centric approach.
Ian also talks with Charlotte Bande, global food and beverage sector lead at Quantis, about how to improve the weak points in mainstream corporate sustainability decision making within the food and agriculture sector. They discuss the continued importance in peer-to-peer collaboration and share guidance on what a good just transition could look like.
And, IDH's regional director for Asia landscapes, Chi Tran, and senior programme manager for coffee, Tessa Meulensteen, discuss with Ian what the incoming EU's deforestation regulation will mean for the coffee sector. They discuss the opportunities and challenges to this regulation, including potential smallholder farmer exclusion and diversity loss in supply chains.
