Climate: Dealing with the inevitable: How can business guarantee food security and help build climate change resilience?

Clock icon 14:30 - 14:30
Climate change and food security are closely linked, with climate change comes an increase in natural disasters such as intense floods, droughts and storms. Miscalculated planting times and failed crops lead to poverty and hunger amongst farmers, as well as destabilising supply chains and jeopardising global food security.  

In this session we’ll talk about:
 
  • The latest innovations in farming techniques and inputs that reduce exposure to changing climates 
  • How best to educate farmers around the efficient use of resources and crop diversification 
  • The role of business in building resilience in local communities, for example by installing renewable energy sources
