Achieving Sustainable Food Systems Through Innovation

March 12 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Held as part of the Fourth Session of the United Nations Environment Assembly, this side event will showcase the ways in which agricultural innovations can contribute to a more sustainable food system, delivering improved environmental stewardship, higher productivity and less food loss and waste.

The moderated Q&A will focus on three core questions:
